The Columbia River Maritime Museum is now open to the public.
The Museum closed its doors on March 16, 2020. Although Governor Kate Brown announced that museums could re-open to visitors on June 3, the Museum opted to take a cautious approach, ensuring all required protocols were met or exceeded before re-opening in late June.
The Museum’s priority is the health and safety of visitors, the local community, and the entire Museum family. The Museum is asking all visitors to adhere to the following guidelines:
• FACE COVERINGS ARE REQUIRED IN THE MUSEUM
• PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING
• FOLLOW THE ONE-WAY JOURNEY THROUGH THE GALLERIES
• USE HAND SANITIZING STATIONS LOCATED THROUGHOUT THE MUSEUM
The 3D Theater seating is at a reduced capacity to allow for adequate social distancing. The Hurricane Simulator, Rain Shadow Augmented Reality Exhibit, and the Lightship Columbia are temporarily closed. Education classes at the Barbey Maritime Center are canceled through the summer. Programming for Fall is available now for registration.
The Museum seized the opportunity to use the shutdown to complete projects that would have been disruptive to visitors, such as maintaining the campus, improving existing exhibits, and launching virtual education programming. More information is available at www.crmm.org.
