Our expert local guides will take you past the modern identity of Portland back to a more dangerous era, where murders, kidnappings, and organized crime could be found behind most of the elegant storefronts of the city. Listen to stories taken straight out of the true history of the last 150 years, and watch for yourself as the spirits of the past can still be seen today.

We specifically visited the USS Blueback submarine at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. The submarine tour was insightful and excellent! Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the tour groups are limited to 6 persons and masks are mandatory. It was definitely fun to be inside a submarine and to see around - this was the final diesel powered combat submarine to leave the US Navy. The amount of electronics she carried is indeed fascinating, I was amazed at the engineering that would have gone into the design and manufacture of this sub in the Cold War era. The tour included visits to the control room where the submarine was steered from, the torpedo room, kitchen, sleeping quarters and engine room. It was fun to sit in the "driver's seat" and go through the enormous instrument panel cluster that steered this sub. Our tour guide was quite nice and he gave us a lot of interesting information about life in a submarine including food, rest and recreation of personnel on board etc while we were seated in the mess decks. Like for instance how showers were time-limited to two minutes, only available once a week for sailors! Or that the cooks in submarine undergo extensive culinary training and thus, food on submarines is one of the best in the US Navy. The tour also included the torpedo room where he talked about the torpedos used in the Cold War era and the ones that are deployed in modern day subs. The tour is priced at around $12 per person and the parking is $5 per vehicle in front of the OMSI building.

We only did the submarine tour and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I was nervous given my claustrophobia but I did not have any troubles. The groups were limited to 6 due to COVID and masks were required. The guide was informative and engaging.

OMSI is such a great place to bring the family to learn and explore. They have changing exhibits each year that are very interesting, most recently I saw the “Exquisite creatures” exhibit, it was amazing. Parking is an honor system where you remember the number and tell them at the counter, and it’s only 5 bucks. Tickets for an adult on an average day are 15$. they have 2$ days, check on their event calendars to plan your visit. They host the hot sauce festival behind the main building every July that is a wonderful event to try and buy many types of sauces! ( my personal favorite event)

Can’t say enough good things. Many science museums cater to kids 10 and under. OMSI had plenty of exhibits that were engaging for teenagers too! Our 16 and 17 year olds had a blast with all the puzzles and hands on experiences.
