Why Kids ♥ It

With endless materials and activities for children to explore, the museum is a perfect place for children to engage in playful learning experiences as they imagine, design, invent and create.

Why Parents ♥ It

Museum exhibits encourage the development of innovative problem-solving skills, feeding a child’s lifelong love of learning. Grown-ups can play alongside their children, actively participating and interacting, all while nurturing their own curiosity, creativity and empathy.


Sprout Spot: A new birth-to-age-3 experience

The Museum welcomes a new birth-to-age-3 experience to our family of exhibits! Re-envisioned with our youngest problem- solvers in mind, this sensory-rich environment will foster intimate, playful connection through light and materials. Opens November 7.

Twilight Trail

Our newly remodeled Twilight Trail transports families to a glowing campfire scene with starry sky, raindrop waterfall and ice cave. In this dim forest, light play abounds. Look up for a view of the moon.

Clay Studio

One of the most unique art spaces for children in Portland, this fully working studio offers a self-led, sensory “making” experience. A membership means access to firing and glazing at a low price year-round.
