Five Portland area historical and cultural museums have collaborated to organize two weeks during the summer for educators to visit for free!

From July 25 – 31 and August 8 – 14, educators who show a valid school ID get free admission into the Japanese American Museum of Oregon, Oregon Jewish Museum, Oregon Historical Society, Lan Su Chinese Garden, and Pittock Mansion.

Each institution has also scheduled an educator focused tour or program each week. While some places may request an RSVP to the tour or program, we will always welcome anyone who decides to attend, even if it’s last minute!

Below is the schedule of programs and other pertinent information about each participating museum.
