What to Know Before You Visit

OMSI remains committed to the health and safety of everyone at the museum—including our visitors, students, staff, and volunteers—and we want you to feel comfortable and safe while discovering at OMSI.

With the state of Oregon having lifted the indoor mask mandate due to decreasing COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, most visitors to OMSI are no longer required to wear a mask or provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination. However, visitors are strongly encouraged to consider wearing a mask while enjoying OMSI, and disposable face coverings remain available for visitor use on request. 

Please note that masks will continue to be required for the following areas and activities:

-The USS Blueback Submarine
-The Teen Tech Center
-Reserved Group Lab Experiences

Proof of COVID-19 vaccination will continue to be required for the following activities:

-OMSI After Dark
-OMSI Maker Workshops
