The museum is home to 327,000 specimens, making this one of the largest and most comprehensive Pacific Northwest bryophyte collections!

As the continued safety and well-being of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our highest priority we are not offering in person tours or activities at this time. The resources below will support your self-led exploration of the collection:

Would you like to learn more about bryophytes and ask questions of our museum team? Join us online on December 6. 


This self-led exploration of the museum collections is recommended for families with children ages 5-12.
