Family Summer Passport The Family Summer Passport Program is a chance for families to explore and visit participating local museums and libraries. This program offers families the opportunity to participate in affordable, family-friendly fun throughout Bell County. The goal of the Family Summer Passport Program is to showcase these great attractions and highlight the experiences you can have at each location. 

Passports are available at participating libraries and museums and can be found on their websites. Stamps should be collected for each participating location in the passport in order for the passport to be marked as completed. Children, ages 3-12, are eligible to receive a stamp for each library or museum visited during Summer 2023, from May 31 to August 31, and can redeem the completed passport by October 31, 2023, for a reward at the following vendors: Bird Creek Burgers, Treno’s Pizza, Jeremiah’s Italian Ice, Wings, Pizza and Things, Firestreet Pizza, or Wheels Family Skating. 

One passport can be redeemed for each participating child. While the passport is designed for children, ages 3-12, all ages can enjoy the attractions listed in the Family Summer Passport 2023.
