Portland Children's Museum - Review
The Children's Museum of Portland is a unique and innovative museum that allows kids to learn about various things in a more practical manner. In the garage of the museum lies recycled material in plenty where kids can explore their skills by creating something productive out of that stuff. The museum is also home to a constructive room, a pottery room, a water room and a more. The interactive exhibits of this museum are enough to engage even a 2 year old. If you happen to visit Portland with your kids, this is one place you can treat them to.

Portland Children's Museum, Portland Reviews
My 2 year old loves this place! Clean, educational, lively fun. Can get crowded. Staff is awesome! Everything is designed for kids' maximum fun. They're thoughtful of parents comfort, too. There are lockers and a stroller parking area, even toddler-side toilets in some of the stalls - my kiddo feels so special. Highly recommended!
I enjoyed the museum, a great interactive experience for children, but difficult with under 1s. It would be nice if the baby changing rooms also had toilets for families to use. I will probably be going back when my daughter is older. One word of warning though, be very careful when parking. The spaces are numbered and if you don't enter in the number right when paying for parking you will get a ticket and you will most likely have to pay it. There is nothing that the museum can do either, the parking lot is monitored and maintained by the park rangers. I recommend taking the max to Washington park to avoid parking issues. Other than the parking issues, the museum is great.
My daughter, son-in-law and grandson were visiting the US from Sweden. It was over 90° every day. The museum was a wonderful place to spend the day. My grandson was fully occupied and enjoyed every feature he engaged in. The atmosphere was pleasant and the play was safe. We were four adults to one kid. There were a lot of folks there but it was not crowded and he was able to play with everything he wanted to play with. We stayed for hours, until closing, but were not able to experience everything that was offered. Haha, and he wasn't ready to leave!
The maker lab room alone is worth a membership. Our tinkerer 7 year old loves it. We want to go back when we have more time to play in the clay studio. The rest of the museum is great for younger kids - toddlers through kindergarten. Lots of pretend play areas (kitchen/market, construction site, veterinarian office). We didn't get a chance to explore the outdoor area so that might be geared to older kids as well. The water/splash room is neat, so many little ones wers having a great time in there!
Pretty cool children’s museum. We spent all day. The things that set it apart are the maker studio, the outdoor space, and the clay studio. I appreciate their philosophy and the environment that gives both parents and children the freedom to let kids grow and learn in a variety of ways. Staff was great.
