PORTLAND, Ore. - Changes are coming to the Oregon Historical Society museum. The beloved Oregon My Oregon exhibition will close after fourteen years of bringing artifact-rich history to hundreds of thousands of visitors.
OHS said the closure will make way for the construction of a new state-of-the-art permanent exhibition called Experience Oregon. The new 7,000 square foot exhibition is in the final design stage and will provide an overview of the state’s history through a 180-degree intro theater giving visitors a portal to Oregon, from sixth generation Oregonians to recent arrivals.
Exhibit themes will invite viewers to think about how Oregonians have defined our state by showcasing new and much-loved artifacts, along with the diverse voices representing Oregon’s cultures and geographies.
Oregon My Oregon’s final day on view will be Sunday, April 29.
The Oregon Historical Society Museum is located at 1200 SW Park Avenue, Portland. It is open seven days a week, Monday – Saturday from 10 am – 5 pm and Sunday from 12 pm – 5 pm. Admission is $11, and discounts are available for students, seniors, and youth. Admission is free for OHS members and Multnomah County residents.
