Portland Art Museum
Created in 1892, primarily to promote visual arts, the Portland Art Museum is set up with several large and open viewing rooms. Do not miss the Native American collection. Also check out the North Wing's Jubitz Center, which houses modern and contemporary art. In the spring, the museum's Northwest Film Center hosts the annual Jewish Film Festival.
The museum's setting in the Park blocks is lovely and makes for a great day to stroll and enjoy, but my very favroite part of the museum and all of its lovely displays, and special events is the truly amazing gift shop. There are items from all over the world, including art, jewelry gifts, books, scarves and lovely decor that never cease to amaze me with the variety and quality of the thousands of items.
The Museum has a beautiful setting on a broad park in the central city. The staff at the Museum is truly friendly, like the city itself.
The collection of European paintings from the Rennaisance and following centuries is sensational for a city of this size. We missed the Impressionists.
Bummer. They are "off-view" until Oct 2005 due to major building renovations.
Very nice museum. Nice cafeteria. Many good exhibits, besides the traditional art of Europe.
Certainly deserving of the AAA "GEM" rating!
