Portland Children’s Museum

portland childrens museumIf you are visiting this city with a hoard of small children, or maybe just a few, the Portland Children’s Museum is a must! This museum places the spotlight on ‘playful learning’, using 'familiar materials to craft priceless opportunities to learn through play'. This entire establishment relies on inquiry-based learning strategies, influenced by the general image of children as innovative, creative, and resourceful little beings. The type of teaching done here is sort of reminiscent of schools of Reggio Emilia, in Italy, though this building, in particular, is located in Washington Park, adjacent to the Oregon Zoo.

This entire museum is dedicated to an audience of children, as well as adults who take care of children, and provides them with such immersive experience as the Opal School for preschoolers and elementary school for K-5. Head over to the Museum Center for Learning to explore visible ways for your children to think, imagine, design, innovate and even create. There will be several different themed educational workshops, science camps, art classes, symposiums, parties, field trips, and so much more within the museum walls, it’s truly easy to see why over 313,000 visitors a year float through here happily. Be sure to save enough time to explore such fun exhibits as Building Bridgetown, Pet Hospital, Vroom Room, or any current special exhibit, such as the Blue Man Group: Making Waves recently. Get ready to learn, play, discover, and have so much fun while doing it all!
