The MAC Has Reopened but . . . 

Thanks to Governor Inslee's decision to allow limited reopening of museums, the MAC was able to open to the public on Tuesday, August 25th. And, we presented our blockbuster exhibition Pompeii: The Immortal City for three weeks, closing September 13.

In order to deinstall Pompeii and prepare our fall exhibitions, the MAC will be closed from September 14-October 2, 2020. We look forward to seeing you again starting October 3 and 4.

We’ve scrutinized every step of the visitor experience and have put new measures in place such as a requirement to book tickets online in advance (includes members), which regulates the number of visitors per hour, as well as changes to the facility and exhibitions that make it a touch-free experience. Along with the mask requirement for employees and visitors, frequent cleaning of common surfaces, and monitoring of galleries by staff, we think that the MAC is among the safest places to go during the pandemic. Watch our video about what you can expect.
