Self Guided Tour Information

Your group is welcome to self-tour the museum with advance notice (7 days). Groups are welcome Wednesday through Sunday. Click here for Museum hours.

The benefit of pre-registering your group is $2 off admission prices. The discount is only applied to groups who pre-register (see form below to register) and make a single payment for the entire group.

The Museum has limited gallery capacity. Our staff reserves the right to limit access when demand becomes too high for reasonable safety or visitor comfort. We highly recommend scheduling all group visits in advance.

Admission is payable by cash, check, or credit card and is due on arrival. We request a single payment be made for the entire group. Reservation cancellations should be made at least 48 hours in advance of the scheduled visit.

Please contact Beth Dehn at 503.645.5353, ext. 133 with any questions or to notify us of the cancellation.
