Welcome! We have important updates to share.
Please read. 

The Museum has begun a major expansion and renovation project that will make our campus more accessible and welcoming to all. Due to construction during the 2023-24 school year, all regular permanent-collection galleries will be closed. Instead, we welcome you to visit these special exhibitions: Black Artists of Oregon, Throughlines, and Africa Fashion. Please confirm exhibition dates on the Museum’s website to ensure the exhibition you intend your students to see will be open at the time of your visit. 

Reservations are currently available through February 18, 2024. Please submit your reservation request at least two weeks in advance.

We are thrilled to launch a new, guided K-12 visit program available starting in October on Wednesdays and Fridays between 10:15 and 1:15 at no charge. Guides engage small groups of students in interactive, participant-centered experiences, including close looking, discussion, sketching, and more, for 30 – 45 minutes. Groups are welcome to remain in the exhibition afterwards for self-guided time. Please see the FAQ for more information.

Self-guided class visits will continue to be offered on Wednesdays and Fridays after 1:00 and all day on Thursdays and weekends

K-12 students, teachers, chaperones, and aides receive FREE admission with advance registration. K-12 transportation reimbursement is available whenever these costs are a barrier to access. Please email your estimated costs to tours@pam.org.College groups receive discounted admission of $5.00/student with advance registration, or free admission for College Student Pass holders.
