  • Lots of great exhibits. Knowledgeable staff here. Great way to spend a rainy day
  • “Great overview of Oregon history” The permanent exhibit covering the history of Oregon is quite well done. They also have numerous changing exhibits. Although it is not the largest museum, it is worth visiting.
  • Good place to bring kids, available parking.
  • The little museum that tries harder. The permanent exhibits are fairly minor but well dons and comprehensive but they go above and beyond with their special shows. Free to Multnomah residents it's a perfect place to bring visitors.

Where to stay in Portland

For easy foot access to Portland's best shopping, dining, and entertainment, stay in or around the downtown area, connected to the rest of the city by light rail. This compact and busy part of Portland contains the highest concentration of hotel rooms in the city, allowing you to explore options ranging from boutique properties to big chains. Thanks to Portland's convenient transportation system, you can also choose a less expensive motel or bed and breakfast in one of the outlying neighborhoods, and still be within minutes of most major tourist attractions.
