    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.

    A few interesting European pieces, a lovely Native American collection and a highly forgettable Pacific Northwest contemporary collection.

    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!

    Take the historic elevator for a ride. It's to the right as you enter. Watch your fingers though - the door is manually operated. Ask any staff member if you need help.

    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!

    $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!

    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.

    Did you know? This is the oldest museum in the Pacific Northwest and the seventh oldest in the United States. The collection includes Native American, Asian, European and American art.

    You can take photos, but remember to turn off your flash before taking any pics. The museum's staff will appreciate this.

    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.
