The collection is not that impressive although it is nicely displayed. It is a pleasant way to spend an afternoon, though.

Very good, probably as good as the Brooklyn museum. Some very interesting pieces that spur the imagination.

Located in downtown Portland along Portland's Broadway and fronting on a beautiful park, the 2 buildings (one of them a former Freemason Temple) have several floors of classic, modern, avant-garde collections - enough for hours of browsing!

Parking is available on the street and in nearby lots. Be careful where you park on the street - some of the sections are 1 hour, some 2 hours, and a couple are 3 hours - just be sure to read the sign before you park. You are directed to a nearby kiosk to pay for the metered parking.

While some of the modern art leaves me scratching my head (Is it art if it looks like its been done witj a paint roler?) this is well worth the visit. The photographic collection is wonderful, with picees from several periods. The Native American collection totally blew me away. Some of the costumes were extraordinary. The very large feast bowl was fantastic. Don;t miss this excellent gallery.

The modern collection here was really enjoyable, even the stuff you need an art degree to understand is still fun to look at for non-artsy folk. I thought we had done the whole thing until I realized there's an entire other museum on the other side. Terrible signage, but I'm excited to go back and see the rest!
