Special Update


Why do we still require masks? Transportation Security Adminsitration ("TSA") regulations currently require all railways, airlines and buses to have persons masked through January 2022. Though social distancing regulations are loosening in much of the region, the Snoqualmie Valley Railroad falls under the jurisdiction of the Federal Railway Administration and TSA. We ask that all visitors over the age of 2 and require for those over the age of 5 to wear a mask that covers both nose and mouth while visiting. By order of King County, proof of vaccination will be required beginning October 25 for all visitors aged 12 and older. The vaccine requirement is a legal mandate imposed by King County. The Museum is required to enforce the law as a condition of remaining open to the public. The Museum has already lost $1.4 million from closures and capacity reductions, further closures would be absolutely disasterous to the Museum. For more information about our social distancing restrictions please visit our Social Distancing Updates page.
