We're open and we can't wait to see you!

We’re the same museum you know and love, with some important updates that put your safety first.

View our Welcome Back Guidelines

Masks are still required after June 30

Even as restrictions are lifted across Seattle, all staff and visitors (except children under the age of 5) are required to wear a mask in all public spaces and galleries for the entirety of their visit, regardless of vaccination status or if they are the only person/pod in a gallery. Children ages 3–4 are encouraged to wear masks, although not required. 

Masks continue to be required to keep immunocompromised and unvaccinated people—including our youngest visitors—safe. For those who cannot wear a mask due to medical reasons, please contact or 206.616.8616 for accommodation information. 

Pre-purchased, online tickets are encouraged. A limited number of walk-up tickets are available on a first come, first-served basis as space allows. Book your ticket in advance to visit at your ideal time and skip the line on busy days like weekends and Free First Thursdays! You can arrive at any time during the hour of your reserved time slot.


When would you like to visit? Please select a date from the calendar.
