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.

This place was like a home away from home for me. Filled with taxidermy, bones and all sorts of other odds and ends (mostly odds). The staff was friendly and helpful and knew their stuff. Of course I would have liked to buy one of everything in the store but could only afford a couple of items. Great quality, classy and weird. Perfect.

I heard about this place on the “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” show and it definitely captured my interest. I’m so glad I had the chance to stop by and enjoy the overwhelming amount of things you can see, and purchase. The staff was wonderfully helpful and friendly.

Our nephew and wife introduced us to Paxton Gate on a previous visit and we HAD to go back. This is a very interesting shop that specializes in taxidermy but also has other biology books and workbooks as well as gems and mineral samples. We also noticed that they were selling eclipse glasses for the August 21 solar eclipse!

Looking into the Paxton Gate windows made it clear that being on the Mississippi Ave. Definitely a great collections of oddities - human skulls and animal skeletons, interesting art (actually an art showing during my visit), a book area that I could have spent the entire day in (not because it's a large selection - just a very interesting selection). A few minutes after I entered a member of the staff (a young blond woman who I assumed was the owner) engaged me in a conversation. The information she provided was so interesting that I felt I was in a place of entertainment or a museum. As I was leaving I noticed that she may not have been that unique as most of the other employees were having conversations with visitors who all seemed very interested.

We loved this store! It had skeletons of animals that were arranged in unique ways! It is for the lovers of odd for sure! Odd animal items for sale! Very interesting to look at all of the taxidermy. A fun store for sure!
