    As a resident your best bet is to go Friday, post-5pm, when admission is $5. You have until 8pm; plenty of time to see the newer rotating exhibits, and the permanent displays at 1/4 of regular price.

    I truly appreciate fine arts so i'm really happy i had the chance to visit this place. Wish i had more time though. Incredible and fascinating arts they have. My favorite is Vision of Fiammetta, 1878

    the collection is varied and interesting but this is one of the only museums i have been to where practically none of the art has a description beyond name, year and artist. hope you're an expert!

    $5 after 5pm on Fridays--great way to spend a few hours walking around and checking out the varied collections. Check out the teeny tiny baskets in the Native American collection--too cool!

    Don't miss the internationally-acclaimed Portland Art Museum, also the oldest museum in the Pacific NorthWest. Stop by the NW Film Center and take in a film while you're there!

    The oldest museum in the Northwest houses nearly 800 Japanese woodblock prints and indigenous work excavated from the Columbia River Gorge.

    Very large museum. If you're a student you can sign up to come for an additional 6-8months for an extra two dollars. Check your Id in to use an iPod touch that narrates the current exhibit.

    Much bigger than you might think. Current exhibits and old faves like Van Gogh! Free every fourth Friday!

    The special exhibit by PDX artist Arvie Smith was moving and artistically spectacular. This is one example.

    If you're thinking of paying $5 for the Francis Bacon exhibit and, like me, are curious but not immensely passionate about Bacon then don't. It's a single triptych in a busy corridor. Total waste.

    Don't bring a stroller. The museum is on various floors and the elevator takes 5-10 minutes. We left after a few floors.

    Check out Elliott Erwitt's photography while you're here! He captures wonderful light-hearted moments in a unique way. My favorite is "Las Vegas Nevada 1954"
