Virtual Museum Visits and Resources

April 2020 while museums and attractions are closed due to the COVID-19 State of Emergency.

Although we are unable to physically visit the institutions that are part of the Bellingham Public Library’s Museum Pass Program, we can visit many of them from the comfort of our homes! So stay right on your couch and enjoy all of the educational and fun entertainment these organizations are providing to the public.

We encourage you to explore all of the resources available on each of the museum’s own webpages, but are including some particularly enriching links here.
