Museum Temporarily Closed to Public
Wenatchee, Wash. – (Mar. 16, 2020) The Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center has been actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation and has been in touch with the Chelan-Douglas Health District as developments about the virus have unfolded. As Washington state government officials are taking steps to keep our public spaces, our communities, and our children safe and healthy, the Museum has made the decision to temporarily close both the Museum and the Wells House to the public, beginning immediately. The Museum has already cancelled or rescheduled all upcoming events, programs, and tours through April 5.
“At this time, we believe this is the right decision to support local and state-wide efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure the health and safety of our community, guests, and staff. We will continue to monitor the situation and reevaluate the need for continued closure of our facilities in the coming weeks,” said WVMCC executive director Keni Sturgeon. “We cannot wait to welcome the public back to the Museum.”
While the Museum buildings are closed, staff will continue to work both on and off site finding ways to be there for our community. Digital content will become available soon to bring the Museum to you.
The public can stay updated on when the Museum will be reopening by visiting wenatcheevalleymuseum.org, subscribing to the Museum email newsletter, and by following the Museum on social media: on Facebook @wenatcheemuseum and on Instagram @wvmuseum.
Please visit the Museum website wenatcheevalleymuseum.org for the latest information or email firstname.lastname@example.org with specific questions.
