The MAC has a virtual tour of the Mount St. Helens Exhibit



To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens, the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture has an exhibit, Mount St. Helens: Critical Memory 40 Years Later, and since the Museum is currently closed to visitors due to the pandemic orders, the MAC is offering this exhibit as a virtual guided tour. This was the most destructive volcanic eruption in our nation's recorded history and remains one of the most universal memories among Pacific Northwesterners. It was also the first eruption of its kind to be extensively photographed and videotaped, creating a wealth of visible and audible records.

The exhibition will highlight the local and regional aspects of the 'volcano next door' and will convey the 1980 experience, focusing the blur of nostalgia through a combination of material artifacts, film, photography, recordings, first-hand accounts, and interactive virtual and electronic communications. Visitors will encounter a variety of analog and digital technologies that tell the story of the Cascade Range's most active volcano.
