Talented instructors lead explorations of different art media through hands-on projects. Every camp includes visits to the Museum! Our camps and classes are designed to inspire imagination, creativity, and the wonder of learning.

Calling all inventors! Portland Children’s Museum is the place to be curious, creative, and inventive this January during Invention Month.

The Museum is the perfect place to host your child’s birthday party.  Your party can be held in one of our indoor birthday party rooms or outside in our pavilion located in Outdoor Adventure. Whichever location you choose, on the day of your party, you and your guests

Sayuri went home and filled her feeder with cereal and peanut butter and hung it at her house hoping to attract eagles and owls. Come make your own Citrus Fruit Bird Feeder with us any Tuesday this month!
