Recognize Risk

While BAM is taking precautions and enforcing social distancing measures, we cannot guarantee zero risk; a risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public setting. By entering the building, visitors accept the risk of exposure and knowingly waive and release Bellevue Arts Museum from any liability related to COVID-19.

 

Visitor Policies

Before you visit the Museum, there are some new visitor policies that we’d like you to know about:

  • Masks are required at all times in the Museum. Masks should be worn so that they fully cover your nose and chin. This policy is critical to the safety of our staff and visitors. We appreciate your cooperation.
  • Follow the marked paths within the building. This helps ensure safe traffic flow and adequate social distance for all guests.
  • Remember to social distance. Give other visitors and groups at least six feet of space while in the Store and Museum Forum.
  • The coat check and second- and third-floor restrooms are temporarily closed.
  • No food or drink allowed in the Museum.


Thank you for doing your part to keep our community safe and healthy!
