  • We came to Washington Park primarily to visit the zoo, but with some time left in the day, we decided to visit the World Forestry Center which is a few hundred yards away. We're glad we did. Although ...  more »
  • We have 10 year olds and they loved this museum. It is relatively small, is 2-story, offers scavenger hunts of varying difficulty, and has a combination of interactive and informative exhibits, includ...  more »
  • I think you can see the large and relatively easy to. And ask at the reception desk is only in English, but could Japan language facilities. In particular say Oregon is supposedly the world's forest's theme. Upstairs to Russia, China, Africa, Brazil and many of the exhibits are quite interesting. Special-purpose vehicles to cut down more trees, and its racing operations. Say oh yes wood products in Japan Japanese-style exhibition. I think says it needs about 2 hours to see. This hotel right in front of the Washington Park station is also convenient. It is very interesting because this station is located deep underground high speed elevators up to the ground station. To enjoy this too.

  • Very interesting and interactive museum. It's fun for children. Could stay and be entertained 2-3 hours.
  • This place is fun the first and second time but after no renovation or updates for over a decade it is boring. I thought I'd give it another go since my zoo membership got my family in for free but with no special exhibit on and everything the same as before we left shortly after arrival.
  • Many of the exhibits were closed. Not much for the preschooler to do. The parachute ride is gone. And the screen quality of the movies was horrible. Needs improvements BIG time. We brought kids from 16 to 3 and we were done with everything within one hour.
  • Beautiful facility that is surprisingly interesting for both older children and adults because of hands-on exhibits. Younger children (under ~6?) might not understand the subject matter of many of the exhibits, but will still be entertained because of the hands-on nature. The parking situation is completely out of control. We had no interest in using the shuttle because it was bitter cold and we were formally dressed. After circling and circling, we finally found an open spot in front of the zoo entrance. The spots are so narrow that we had to let the passengers out before parking. There was only about 10 inches between cars. We have no idea how the people next to us were able to get into their cars and leave. We have an older car so we were OK with our doors getting banged up. My advice: Use lightrail to save yourself many headaches.
  • This is very educational. Went here back in the '70's, and took my daughters here when they were young. For anyone who wants to give an educational place a low rating, don't bother. It just means that your a gamer and can't enjoy the finer things in life.

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.
