Visitors will notice some changes from pre-pandemic days. There will be an entry fee for everyone five and older, and the visitor center will offer timed admission and a one-way loop through exhibits. Oregon State University, which operates the center, says the admission fee is temporary and will pay for extra staffing and public health measures.
