“The Portland Art Museum was founded in 1892 and is the seventh oldest museum in the country. The museum has become famous around the world because of its permanent collection that has more than 42,000 pieces in it. For history buffs there are plenty of historic art pieces on display. There are many pieces that have been collected from the native people of North America as well as a large collection of English silver. The campus that the museum sits on also has the Jubitz Center for Modern and Contemporary Art which is well worth taking a look at.”
“Biggest book store around this place has 5 stories of books. You can literally spend all day here”
“The largest urban park in the USA. Miles of forest hiking trails with magical tree canopy, wild moss, and local flora. Only 15minutes away but you’ll feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere.”
“A great place (well managed) to explore with the family. Animals from all over the world and a children's museum right across the street. If you're visiting between Thanksgiving and New Year's you must go see the 1.5 million Christmas light display!”
