My family has had a pass for the past couple years. This is a great opportunity for kids to learn and have a little freedom to play. The exhibits are well thought out, from a digger with crumbles of old rubber tires to scoop up,...More

My son absolutely loved it. Being a toddler, he was able to explore and touch everything. Each area had it's own theme, and set up so he could move around at his own pace. He split most of his time between the stage area, the...More

Worth the money for the day if you have stir-crazy kids who are sick of doing adult things in Portland. Activities that engage children and adults alike. Worth a try!

We visited the Children's Museum while in Portland on vacation with my grandchildren, ages 2 and nearly 4. This museum offered something for each of them in every room. Construction projects, road and bridge fun with cars, pottery making (that you can take home), water...More

This place was a lot smaller than expected and some rooms seemed over stuffed with children. I really wish they had separate areas for different age groups because some of the older children put the younger ones in harms way as they plow through the...More

Families with young children will likely love the Children's Museum. There are many different areas for children to explore, including a market, water area, forest, Makerspace, and theater area. The Children's Museum seems to frequently rotate their main exhibits and have lots of interactive art...More
