Clark County Historical Museum reopens April 15

Temporary hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday through Saturday; museum will take COVID-19 precautions, require masks for staff and visitors

The Clark County Historical Museum (CCHM) will reopen to the general public this week. The museum’s temporary operating hours will be 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, beginning Thursday, April 15, until further notice.

Admission to the museum will be on a first-come-first-served basis. To show appreciation for the continued hard work and dedication of frontline workers and their families, CCHM is offering complimentary admission to first responders and essential healthcare workers who have identification.

Attendance in the galleries will be held to 50-percent capacity in accordance with Washington State Phase 3 COVID-19 guidelines. In addition, all recommended and mandatory safety measures, including mask requirements, one-way paths through the galleries, and enhanced sanitizing and cleaning protocols remain in effect. To help ensure public safety and prevent crowds, staggered entry may be implemented.

Private group tours will be permitted on Wednesdays for small groups. In-person events normally held at the museum remain virtual and the CCHM will not be taking rental requests through 2021. The Research Library and Brautigan Library will be available by reservation only. Reservations must be made no less than two weeks in advance.
