This is a pleasant museum with various collections in a nice spacious building. Liked the European art but collection is not as great as you might see in Europe. Interesting modern art. Good shop and place to get a coffee.

It is a must see in Portland, rain or shine. The permanent exhibits are excellent, and the new building is very cool. They have an great collection of master works and also innovative works, too.

This museum was a surprise! It has an excellent collection of Native American Art. We were also impressed by the fine collection of French Impressionist paintings. You can easily spend a few hours. Highly recommended for art lovers!

I love this space. It is so calm and relaxing and the art changes enough to make it a regular stop. Even the architecture of the building itself is something beautiful to reflect upon. Great for a date night!

We had only had time to visit half the gallery but the parts we saw were very well done. The Northwest art was beautifully presented. If you like gift shops, then this one had an extensive inventory and well worth the visit.
