From The Whale Museum…
After over 5 months of being closed, we got word that the Governor is allowing museums to open in Phase 2 (8–2020)! The Exhibit Hall and Gift Shop are open daily 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
We are diligently following every rule put in place by the Health Department and Washington State in order to keep our staff, our customers, and this community healthy and safe.
Please be self-aware of any COVID-19 symptoms and delay your visit until you are healthy.
Some things that will be different:
• Our Exhibit Hall & Gallery are no-touch with some areas closed. All interactive exhibits are temporarily closed.
• A cloth face covering must be worn at all times during your visit, includes everyone over the age of 2.
• Social Distancing, must keep 6 feet of distance from all staff and other visitors.
• Limited Exhibit Hall Gift Shop capacity — Limited to 40 customers only.
• Restrooms will be unavailable to guests.
• Hand sanitizer will be available and we ask that you use it or provide your own.
• Additional Updated Protocols, staff will gladly explain during your visit.
Please check back with us for updates.
Our online site (www.whalemuseum.org) for orca adoptions & shopping are also open. We appreciate your patience and understanding and look forward to seeing you at The Whale Museum soon.
