  • Went on a rainy day when the adjacent zoo was closed so the place was packed. The good thing was that the Grand Kids liked it so it has to be good. However, parking was not free ($1.60 an hour) and ad...  more »
  • This was my favorite place in all of Portland for kids. I liked it even better than the other museums around because it was compact, but conducive to learning with SO many options for any kid. Outside...  more »

  • Worth the membership. I was apprehensive and wanted to think about it. They refunded my admission cost for the same day that I bought the membership which was great. We love coming here and along with the awesome reliable exhibits they keep things fresh with seasonal rotating activities.
  • This is a wonderful children's museum, the play areas are geared towards toddlers and Pre-K, and for older kids there is an auditorium and puppet show space, a maker studio (with recycled goods) and a clay studio. Don't miss the "underwater" black-light room if you have little ones that like to chase each other around. If you are going solely for the Eric Carle exhibit, it's pretty light, only featuring a few originals, most are reproductions, otherwise, have fun playing!
  • First time taking my daughter to this museum and first time for me. She loved it. She was a little on the small side for a lot of things but that didn't stop her or me. haha.
  • A fantastic museum for kids and their families. Activities indoors and out for all age ranges. After an hour and a half visit, we enthusiastically registered our granddaughter and her parents as members!
  • Transgender not welcome. Over the last week I've heard that the zoo parking lot has been great for catching Pokemon and finding other trainers to socialize with. I decided to go see what the fuss was about it today and I sat down outside the museum with my friend who tagged along. Not 5 minutes in I was approached by a manager of the museum who asked me to leave the premises. She said that adults aren't allowed to sit outside for more than ten minutes. I said, "i'm playing Pokemon and I'm not a pedophile, I'm a paramedic." She insisted that I leave and i told her that I would once my lures were done. I then walked a ways away and found another spot to sit and play and I watched the museum. I saw crowds of 5-15 people come and sit for hours on end with no manager approaching them and asking them to leave. Yes, I am transgender. No, I'm not a pedophile. How dare you demand that I leave your premises because of a made up, bullshit rule and then not enforce it on the others around. How. Dare. You. You will hear from my lawyers
