Really please we visited the art gallery in portland. When we arrived, we took part in some drawing activities, my daughter loved it. We then looked around at some of the fantastic pieces on display here.

Portland MOA is a nice, smaller museum of art. Very courteous staff, very clean. Cost only $11 with your AAA card. Takes about 2 hours to see the whole museum. Definitely something to see when you are visiting Portland. Accessibility for disabled individuals is excellent.

Seriously. I live in Portland and rarely write reviews for my own town, but this is one of the greatest small city art museums in the U.S. How many museums in the world have a documented 16th Century Mona Lisa??!! (not always on display). If I had one day in Portland, this would be my #1 choice (not the bus... More

Really. They say that brevity is the soul of wit so that's where this "review" starts and stops. World class this fine museum surely is!

We happened to be in Portland for the first Friday of the month. This meant the Museum was free on Friday evening! We enjoyed the Museum (though is was a bit crowded, as might be expected) and then walked the surrounding area looking at artist's displays. An unexpected treat!

If you love the Wyeths, Winslow Home, Rockwell Kent, Gilbert Stewart, and throw in Monet, Renoir and Mary Casatt, you will like this museum. It is filled with surprises. Tiffany glass, magnificent sculptures, are there for your viewing.

I've been going to Portland for years and am always impressed by the museum and the quality of its exhibitions. Very diverse collection, I love photography and the museum always had interesting new shows. Great stop in Pirtland

I enjoy coming to Portland for a weekend away & I usually enjoy visiting the Art Museum. This year, I was disappointed that there was an additional charge included with the usual fee to see the exhibit from the Brooklyn Art Museum. I very much am offended that this small museum needs to charge extra for a special,exhibition. This exhibition... More
