Group Visits

Bring your group to the museum for a thought-provoking exhibit overview led by museum staff during regular business hours. Entrance includes access to This Kalapuya LandTimber in the Tualatin Valley and the new AgriCulture exhibit (opens September 27). Use our exhibits to expand classroom curriculum and learn some conversation starters through new contexts using historical artifacts, primary sources, and diverse texts. Folks of all ages will gain a better understanding of the region’s history, art, science, and culture.
