What to Expect When Visiting MoPOP

King County COVID Vaccine Mandate

Due to a King County mandate, all guests 12 years and older will be required to show proof of full vaccination or a negative PCR COVID test taken within 72 hours prior to your visit.

A guest is considered “fully vaccinated” two weeks after their final dose of vaccine (the second dose of a two-dose mRNA vaccine such as Moderna or Pfizer, or a single-dose regimen like Johnson & Johnson).

Documentation of vaccination status must be shown for entry prior to entering the building. Acceptable forms of proof of full vaccination are:

• A CDC vaccine card or photo of vaccine card.

• Documentation from medical record/vaccine provider.

• Proof of vaccination from another state or country.

• Mobile app documentation of vaccine.

• Printed or virtual certificate from

Note: You do not need to show identification with proof of vaccination


Acceptable forms of proof of vaccination.

If you are not able to document that you are fully vaccinated, you may instead provide proof of a negative PCR COVID test in the last 72 hours. Note: Results of at-home tests are not permitted.

Acceptable forms of proof are:

• Printed test result document (from a test provider or laboratory)

• An email or text message stored electronically from the test provider or laboratory

Information provided in the test results should include:

• Name of the person tested

• Type of test performed

• Date of the negative test (which must be within the prior 72 hours)


Negative COVID test taken in the last 72 hours

Increased Cleaning and Sanitation

• Use of electrostatic sprayers in galleries and high-traffic areas.

• Touchless hand sanitizer dispensers at all museum and exhibition entrances and in high-traffic areas.

• Touchless soap dispensers in all bathrooms.

• We are running 100% fresh air through the museum! Our air intake is 80ft above sidewalk/street level. The air is filtered several times by MERV 13 and 16 filters, and we've increased the capacity of our exhaust fans to keep things fresh.

For Employees

• Required training on COVID-19 and ways to protect themselves and others.

• Employees required to wear face masks at all times in the museum.

For Guests

• Requiring guests ages 3 and above to wear a face covering at all times.

• Encouraging tickets purchased in advance for a specific entry time to guarantee a reservation.

• Only accepting credit/debit card or digital wallet payments.

• Providing recyclable stylus pens for guests to use with interactive elements.

• Restricting use of coat check except for storing items not allowed in the museum.

Sound Lab is temporarily closed due to its high touch nature, enclosed spaces, and difficulty in cleaning.
