Preventive measures help our well-loved exhibits last longer. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Everyone loves Water Works, but it’s starting to show. We will be removing all the exhibit componentry and re-painting with a special paint for wet surfaces. 
 

The Market welcomes everyone to seek connections while they playfully explore the role of food in the stories of our lives.

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.

Build-Topia is a magical land brimming with possibility. Whether you want to design a city out of carpet tiles, weave with wild flowers, or create a story in stop-motion animation, Build-Topia is the place to bring your imagination to life.

This September is Build It Month and Portland Children’s Museum is excited to start construction. All September long we are providing activities that have been inspired by the world around us and by different builders throughout history.

Kaitlyn had a blast @portlandchildrensmuseum on this rainy afternoon! Kingston, sadly, slept through most of it. Build-Topia is a place for grownups to imagine and create too! Thanks to our Build-Topia partner @fort_boards for these awesome fort-building kits!

This strengthens their understanding of how our farms, markets, and ​the food we eat ​are connected, and how we are connected to them all.​

Did you know the face-painting station can double as a spa for parents? You can request a manicure or a facial! 😜 .
