It happened to be a rainy day in Portland, so it was definitely perfect for museums. The Historical Society has quite a diverse and interesting collection of Portland history. It's well worth 2 or 3 hours of wandering to learn about the city and state's history.

Nice, concise museum that provides the history of Portland from the Native Americans forward. Well worth a visit.

The Historical Society has put together a little gem of a museum. A permanent exhibit on Oregon's History plus two interesting roving exhibits (Presidential Memorabilia and the Japanese American during WW 2) made our visit very enjoyable. The OHS is across the street from the Art Museum.

A rainy day sent us in search of an indoor activity, and this turned out to be an excellent choice. The Oregon history exhibit on the top floor is really interesting -- The 9,000-year-old sandals are pretty amazing! -- although I would have liked to see a little bit more info on the more recent decades that really changed the state and Portland.
