Pretty big, but only one good room. Couple nice pieces outside that room, but mostly not. Easy parking. Hopefully, with the high ticket-prices they'll be able to acquire better content later.

I like funkier museums, and the Portland Art Museum acts like it's the MET, a bit snobby, HOWEVER they do have some fantastic shows, and some rather pointless ones. But I have seen some jaw dropping art there, so it's worth it to see the...More

We took our teenage grandchildren here and saw the "Jennifer Steinkamp" installation. I have never seen anything like it before. Life size trees, spinning though it's year, leaves and flowers animated on large screens then dropping their leaves, I can't really discribe it well, you...More

Street parking is available all around the museum, and parking lots as well. The gift shop at the museum is wonderful. Consider going across the street to the Oregon Historical Society if you have additional time.
