  • Worth a quick stop, especially for the native / indigenous people's wing, their collection of works on paper. Plan ahead so you get to those galleries first then see the other stuff after.  more »

  • I had the absolute best time at the museum. I took a long lunch break and just explored all the exhibits. I felt so inspired and motivated. I need to go back now that the exhibits have rotated. It has a great cafe and just an utterly great way to spend an afternoon.
  • Great museum! There are many exhibitions from many cultures around the world. There was so much, I didn't even finish! If I'm in Portland again, I will definitely return. Plus there is a little cafe. I highly recommend.
