Oregon Historical Society Reopening


After nearly four months closed, the Oregon Historical Society reopens this Saturday, July 11, 2020, at 10 a.m. Following reopening, OHS will be operating under new hours for our museum and store:

  • Wednesdays – Saturdays: 10am – 5pm
  • Sundays: 12pm – 5pm
  • Mondays & Tuesdays: CLOSED

The OHS Research Library remains closed for renovations that began in January 2020. More information on library services that are available during the renovation can be found at ohs.org/libraryreno.

Following the guidance and requirements of the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) for cultural attractions and museums, the Oregon Historical Society has implemented important safety protocols for the health of our staff and visitors.

Wear A Face Covering: Pursuant to the Governor’s executive order, all visitors age twelve and older are required to wear a face covering. If visitors do not have a face covering, single-use face coverings will be provided at no charge.

Maintain Distance: Signage through 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, high touch hands-on interactive features in open exhibitions are closed until further notice. Our History Hub exhibit and Photo Hallway gallery are both temporarily closed.

Other Safety Precautions Include:

• Hand-sanitizing stations

• Plexiglass sneeze guards at point of sale stations

• Designated one-way paths

• Limited contact transactions; at this time, we will be discouraging cash/check transactions

• Limiting building capacity to a maximum of 150 visitors

• Limiting museum store capacity to four shoppers at one time
