Fort Vancouver National Historic Site reopens after pandemic closure

By , Columbian Features editor

Fort Vancouver National Historic Site reopened Tuesday after a monthslong closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The reconstructed fort and Pearson Air Museum are open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, according to the National Park Service. The park, which will be limited to 25 percent capacity, requires visitors to wear cloth masks during their visits and follow social distancing protocols. Select buildings within the stockade will be open, while some buildings will be viewable only from their doorway.

Admission to Pearson Air Museum is free. A seven-day ticket to the reconstructed fort is $10 per person and free for ages 15 and younger. You can pay entrance fees just inside the fort gates or online at before you go.

The visitor center, which is free, will be open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays only, but the National Park Service expects to expand its operating hours in November.
