Closure Update and
Online Resources

As you know, Governor Inslee imposed a Stay Home – Stay Healthy Order throughout Washington State, prohibiting Washingtonians from leaving their homes or participating in social, spiritual and recreational gatherings and all non-essential businesses in Washington State from conducting business. The order became effective at midnight, March 25 and lasts through Wednesday, April 8. To remain consistent with this new mandate, the MAC is extending its closure of the museum through April 8. The entire campus will remain closed including the galleries, auditorium, archives, and offices. All meetings and programs scheduled between now and April 24th were previously cancelled. We will continue to provide you with updates as the situation changes. Read more.
