Our new 3-Month Summer Pass is online now for $45, for access to the Museum between June 20 and September 20, 2018. This new pass grants full access for up to four guests at each visit to Portland Children’s Museum. Hurry because this sale only lasts until June 17!

Ever wonder what your child can learn from playing in Water Works? Are you are curious about the Museum but haven’t had a chance to visit?

We are working on making the water buttons in Outdoor Adventure more accessible and responsive. Water will be running again in July. In the meantime, there will be sprinklers and misters for you to enjoy!
