Wearing face coverings, whether made of cloth or paper, is a requirement for all Museum visitors over the age of 2 while indoors and outdoors. Due to new government guidelines, medical exceptions can no longer be made. Paper face coverings are available for purchase at Admissions. Those younger than age 2 will not be expected to wear a face covering. 

Face shields are no longer an acceptable form of face covering at the Museum, in alignment with the Oregon Health Authority’s updated recommendations. Face shields are only accepted when the visitor has a medical condition that prevents them from wearing a mask or when visitors need to see mouth motions in order to communicate (i.e. for communicating with people with hearing impairments).

Thank you for wearing face coverings — together, we can all help keep each other healthy.
