Know Before You Go
Following the guidance and requirements of the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) for indoor entertainment establishments, the Oregon Historical Society has implemented important safety protocols for the health of our staff and visitors. We thank you for adhering to the following guidelines as we do our part to protect our community.

Wear A Face Covering: Pursuant to the statewide reopening guidance on masks, face coverings, and face shields, all visitors age five and older are required to wear a face covering at all times during their visit. 

Maintain Distance: Signage throughout the museum will remind visitors to keep six feet of distance between themselves and visitors outside of their party.

Modified Exhibit Access: For the safety of our visitors, only a limited number of interactive elements in our Experience Oregon and Oregon Voices exhibits that visitors can operate using a stylus pen will be available. Our History Hub exhibit is closed until further notice due to the hands-on nature of this exhibition. 

Other Safety Precautions Include:
  • Additional hand sanitizing stations installed at the museum’s entrance and throughout the building
  • Plexiglass sneeze guards installed at point of sale stations
  • Designated one-way paths to maintain required distancing as visitors enter, exit, and enjoy our exhibitions
  • Limited contact transactions; at this time, we will be discouraging cash/check transactions
  • At this time, building capacity is limited to a maximum of 50 people (includes staff and visitors) in the museum at one time  
  • Museum Store capacity is limited to four shoppers at one time
