SEATTLE — After a year-long pause, the Museum of History and Industry is back in business, with appropriate Covid protocol and timed-ticket visits required.

And a new exhibition awaits. 

'Stand Up Seattle: The Democracy Project' explores democracy's strengths and frailties at a time when our governing institutions are reeling from political attack and insurrection.
