The museum is open to the public.
Fall hours:
Wednesdays through Sundays | 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Thursdays until 8:00 p.m.


Health and safety are our priorities. 

We have several measures in place to protect the health of our visitors, volunteers, and staff:

  • Masks are welcome though optional, per University of Oregon guidelines.
  • Everyone at the museum is encouraged to follow current CDC guidance for protecting themselves and others from COVID-19.
  • Children must be closely supervised by their adult(s) at all times. 
  • We urge all visitors to stay home when sick. Please review the University of Oregon's symptom checker and make sure you haven't experienced any of the listed symptoms during the 72 hours leading up to your visit. Museum staff members are also committed to staying home when sick and will perform a standardized symptom check before coming to work each day.    
  • We’re providing visitors with additional hand-sanitizing stations and conducting frequent cleaning and sanitizing procedures throughout the building.  

Open hours and safety protocols are subject to change based on continuing guidance from the University of Oregon and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Please stay tuned to our website for updates.
