Portland Childrens Museum


About the Museum The Portland Children’s Museum is a regional resource for healthy early childhood development. Our mission is to inspire imagination, creativity, and the wonder of learning in children and adults by inviting moments of shared discovery. Since relocating to Washington Park in 2001 attendance has grown to nearly 320,000 visits per year. The Museum, including Opal School, our K-5 Portland Public charter school, and the Museum School, our fee-based preschool and kindergarten, and the Center for Children’s Learning, all serve as a center for research and documentation on early childhood development with a focus on inquiry-based approaches to teaching and learning through the arts and sciences. The Museum’s exhibits, art studios, and programs are based on research on early childhood brain development, which indicates that stimulation, like nutrition and environmental surroundings, is critical to how children grow. We are dedicated to creating and sustaining programs that meet our mission and positively impact the physical, social, and emotional development of young children and that are based on best practices and Oregon education standards
