COVID-19 (Coronavirus) -updated 3/24/20

As a public space for our community, the health and safety of our visitors, members, staff, and volunteers is of the utmost importance. Following recent directives from the State of Washington and King County health officials, the Museum is closed to the public and suspending all events and programs until further notice. This is a fluid and rapidly changing situation and will keep our community informed about our reopening as the situation continues to evolve.

Museum staff are working remotely to ensure that BAM can continue to fulfill its mission of providing a public forum for the community to contemplate, appreciate, and discuss visual culture. We appreciate your support as we all work together to assist our community in staying safe and healthy.
