The art was absolutely great but the parking was very difficult. Great photography and a Winslow Homer, a treat to see.

Always something good here (and your Back of America card gets you in for free on the first full weekend of every month). The current exhibition of "The Robbers" is thought provoking, particularly in this time and place.

It’s easy to take in the whole museum and special exhibitions in 2-3 hours which is nice because you don’t feel overwhelmed as you can in some museums. I was impressed by the range of artists in their collection.

I have been to museums all around the world and this is a stand-out experience. I love that the collection is small enough to really enjoy and savor each piece but large enough to be well worth a stop. Renoir, Degas, Monet, Wyeth, Sargent... ALL...More

Some excellent examples of US and European art. Not too large to be exhausting. Portland is right to be proud of its gallery. Basement cafe with architectural Lego keeps the young builder entertained.

We always look forward to catching the local Art Museums when staying different places. PMA is a beautiful facility with an impressive variety of local and international artwork.
