Portland Sights

Portland Children's Museum

Updated 05/20/2013

Fodor's Review

Colorful sights and sounds offer a feast of sensations for kids of all ages where hands-on play is the order of the day. Visit nationally touring exhibits, catch a story time, a sing-along, or a puppet show in the Play It Again theater, create sculptures in the clay studio, splash hands in the waterworks display, or make a creation from junk in the Garage. To reach the museum's complex, take the Zoo exit off U.S. 26, or take MAX light rail to Washington Park station.

Excellent for kids of all ages!

What a fantastic place! We travelled with our three-year-old and it was an absolute hoot. He could play everything from grocery store (with a real checkout) to Dentist (with real x-rays). We easily spent a couple hours there before we could drag him out. Its a great place for kids to play pretend and have fun. We would definitely go back if we're ever in Portland again!
