Pacific Bonsai Museum (2515 S. 336th Street) is reopening to the public Tuesday, July 14. Visitors are welcome once again to admire the museum’s bonsai collection from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday.
To keep people safe, the bonsai museum has implemented some new guidelines.
Visitors are encouraged to wear a mask or face covering, and can sport the museum’s own line of five botanical print masks sewn by the Refugee Artisan Initiative. The masks are available at the museum’s online shop.
Exhibit spaces have also transitioned to one-way paths to increase social distancing. At any alcove space, people are encouraged to abide by the guideline of one household at a time in the viewing space.
The enclosed Conservatory exhibit remains closed at this time, and group tours or in-person field trips remain temporarily suspended.
In the museum’s restrooms, touchless faucets, touchless soap dispensers and touchless paper town dispensers have been added for safety. Hand sanitizer is also available at stations throughout the museum.
“Thank you for your patience, understanding, and bendy-branch flexibility as we all adjust to these changes,” wrote Executive Director Kathy McCabe in a recent newsletter.
