  • My family and I have been traveling back and forth between New York City and Portland for the last decade and a half. What a treat it is..consistently. We love being here and love venturing through Portland and discovering treasures like the Portland Art Museum. The exhibits were magnificent--we'll be back...
  • This place is BIG. First of all. Show up early if you're planning on seeing all the art. There are some art installations that are not in my interest but majority was really interesting to see. From modern weird postings to ancient artifacts. Cool place definitely a great visit
