  • Neat place. Forestry/logging simulation was worn out and not working correctly so that was a disappointment. Enjoyed it more than I had though. Good information and a learning opportunity. Doesn't look like exhibits change much so after you've seen it once ......
  • One of the best places to explore Oregon's nature. Near the zoo and a must see! I highly recommend a visit and for those that embrace mother nature; I think you will leave with a smile! Children will love this place!!!
  • It was a neat way to spend a couple of hours. We also learned some cool facts and a little history about Forestry.
  • I hiked with a group first through the Vietnam War Memorial. Then off through some woodsy trails to a high point that had a good view of the city and hazy mountains . We stopped at the viewpoint and had apple cider and donuts. After starting up again on the hike we went on a trail towards my car then I bid goodbye and went to my car.
  • Museum about forests and how people use them. Some exhibits are dated, but I thought the museum was good. I spent 2 hours here.

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.
