Ready to explore?
OMSI is open on a limited basis. We're excited to welcome you back to the museum to explore our latest exhibit Dinosaurs Revealed, the Natural Science Hall, see Empirical Theater and Kendall Planetarium shows, and tour the USS Blueback Submarine.
To meet state guidelines and help keep our entire community healthy, OMSI has limited capacity, introduced staggered ticketing times, posted social distancing markers throughout the museum, and is continuing to require face coverings.
What to Know Before You Visit
The health and safety of OMSI guests and staff is our utmost priority, and we want you to feel comfortable and safe while discovering at OMSI. As state guidelines continue to evolve and to successfully serve everyone in our community—from guests to students to educators—we’re continuing to require face coverings and distancing within the museum.
To meet state guidelines and help limit the spread of COVID-19, OMSI has taken the below steps:
- Staff and guests will be wearing face coverings
- Capacity for open areas has been reduced to meet OHA requirements and safety protocols for Indoor Entertainment Establishments
- Providing online ticketing (we'll scan your ticket for contactless entry)
- Social distancing signs are posted throughout the museum to ensure your group has plenty of space
- Enhanced cleaning protocols are in place and additional hand sanitizing stations have been installed throughout the museum
