Oregon Historical Society

 

Located downtown near snazzy places such Higgins and the Arlene Schnizter Concert Hall, this impressive museum is a great way to tickle your dad's love of history while also showcasing some fascinating features of modern Oregon. The Oregon Historical Society has rotating exhibits and costs $11.00 for admission.

Many people around the country have very little knowledge of Oregon, its history, or geography. In fact, a scary amount of East Coasters think Portland is a small city that is on the coast. That's right, your beloved town is a big zero on most people's radar. The OHS museum gives you a chance to, at least, show your parents some amazing facts about Portland and the state.


Inside the museum you'll discover:
  • Shelter from the rain
  • Things to point at
  • Fascinating, beautifully presented exhibits
  • A Genealogy Library
  • Fascinating artifacts from Oregon's pioneer days 
Since the snow prevents travel to some of Oregon's most remarkable natural landmarks like Mt. Hood and Crater Lake, the Oregon Historical Society allows you to brag about these beauties from afar.
