Visited the home and toured the grounds and building. We paid for the guided tour which is almost a necessity if you wish to learn about the history of Portland, the family, and the mansion. Make sure that you are aware of the tour schedule prior to arriving. You can choose to tour the mansion on your own, too.

Spent a wonderful morning walking through the Pittock Mansion this weekend. If you are looking for a holiday event, this is a wonderful location to discover Portland from years gone by. The final driving stretch is a small, winding road up the hillside to the mansion. Take it slow, and enjoy the small signs posted on the side of the... More

a mansion, a bit of a museum, genuine period furniture and furnishings, perched on top of a hill with a magnificent view of Mt. Hood and downtown Portland. Definitely worth visiting. we went up By car but walked down the Hill to downtown Portland taking the Trail described in "walk there!" http://www.oregonmetro.gov/tools-living/getting-around. Beautiful houses along the route and good exercise... More

The mansion was decorated for Christmas, and it was full of visitors. We happened to be there while the Sherlock Holmes Society, in full Victorian garb, was having an event. I'm not sure, but I think the visit would have been as interesting even without the Christmas decor. The mansion had the newest available conveniences for 1914, and there were... More

Henry Pittock was a miser. When someone accused him of this he set out to build a home for his children and grandchildren that would rival any and all comers. He made his fortune in lumber, newspaper, and printing. He arrived to Oregon from Pennsylvania in 1835 without a penny to his name. His is a fascinating story and the... More

This was my first visit, but since it is basically an old big house...not as ornate as the mansions in Rhode Island...this is a place to see at the holidays. You learn the history of the Pittocks and other inhabitants. They change the holiday theme each year. It is near Washington Park if you want to pack in a full... More

interesting mansion built with unique features; interesting family history. The Christmas decorations hide some details but it's still wonderful. Make sure you also see the small house. Great views if it's a clear day. Even with the clouds we could see the river.

I can’t speak for the mansion interiors, but the grounds are immaculate. It also has some of the best views of downtown Portland. So good are the views that after our first trip there when Mt. Hood was not visible because of cloud cover, we returned at the end of our trip on what ended up being a clear sunny... More

The pittock mansion is a wonderful place to visit for an afternoon of exploring the past. During the Christmas season it is so masterfully decorated and the house/mansion is just beautiful. Take time to explore the history of this great structure.
