One of the seven oldest museums in the United States, the Portland Art Museum, founded in 1892, is internationally recognized for its permanent collection and the organization of ambitious special exhibitions drawn from its holdings and the world's finest public and private collections. The Museum's 2 1/2 block campus of landmark buildings houses a permanent collection of 35,000 objects. The Museum's collection is especially distinguished in its holdings of French painting, English silver, the arts of the Native Peoples of North America, its graphic arts collection, and a center devoted to the artists of the Pacific Northwest. Serving an annual audience of over 500,000 visitors, the Museum is a premier venue for education in the visual arts and the collection and preservation of art for the enrichment of present and future generations.

The Portland Art Museum is located at 1219 S.W. Park Avenue in downtown Portland. Please see the Museum's website for hours and admission fees.
