News Release
Portland-Area Museums and Cultural Attractions are United on Mask Policy - 05/20/21

Portland, OR — A coalition of the leading museums and cultural attractions in the Portland area released the following statement:

“While our organizations have different missions, we share much in common. We are all community spaces where everyone can come together to learn and to deepen our understanding of the world we share. We all welcome visitors of all ages. And we all understand that the health and safety of our visitors, staffs, and volunteers must remain our top priority. For now, we agree that means continuing to require our visitors to wear masks. This policy will also allow us to offer a safe and welcoming space to families with children who are not currently eligible to be vaccinated as well as to individuals who are unable to get vaccinated. We all look forward to the day in the near future when we can safely lift the mask requirement.

As conditions change, our individual policies may change as well. Please check the website of each organization as you plan your visit.”

The following organizations have authorized this statement:

Architectural Heritage Center

Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum

Five Oaks Museum

Japanese American Museum of Oregon 

Lan Su Chinese Garden    

Oregon Coast Aquarium
