  • This is a wonderful art museum with a ranging collection of different styles and eras. A portion of the museum is dedicated to local and regional artists which is a wonderful touch and the museum provides some context to the local and regional cultural significance. I spent approximately three hours here on my visit and potentially could have spent more. I recommend making a stop when in Portland. It is a change of pace from other activities and has an excellent collection.
