Looking for a great place to take the kids that is also educational? In Portland there are a variety of museums, some kid friendly and some not so much. So where is the best place to head if you have kids? We have compiled a list of the top ten family friendly museums in Portland, Oregon, so that you know the best places to head to and what to expect when you get there. We have done the ground work figuring out which museums in the city are best for kids and why. For example the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry is geared for kids with tons of hands on activities, including science experiments, making it an extra fun museum for families. Then there's the Historic Belmont Firehouse that is almost a local secret, but a fabulous museum for families, especially those with kids into being a fire fighter someday. The Portland Art Museum makes our list for having a special day every week just for kids, making an internationally known art museum family friendly. We included the Portland Children's Museum which is dedicated to hands on learning for children making it the perfect place for families.
