One Pass to See Them All: Portland’s Best Cultural & Historical Sites, Museums, Gardens, and Attractions

Collective

Whether you’re visiting Portland from another city, or you live here and have a few days off to explore your own city, our friends over at Travel Portland can help you get the most bang for your buck while seeing some of the city’s most notable points of interest. They have created four different Attraction Passes that give you entry into all or a curated selection of Portland’s best museums, gardens, and cultural & historical sites. The passes are good for five days from the date of purchase, and can only be purchased online. The Attraction Passes cater to the needs of the traveler whether you want it all (the Big Pass) or just want a select few from the list (the Washington Park Pass,  the Downtown Pass, or the Garden Pass).

All attractions are accessible by TriMet bus, MAX train, or Portland Streetcar, although the Pittock Mansion is a bit of a walk from the nearest bus stops. If you’re getting the Big Pass, you’ll have to fit more than one attraction into each of the five days if you want to see them all, and fortunately some of the locations are very close to each other, which makes for efficient exploration (e.g. the Oregon Zoo, the Portland Children’s Museum, and the World Forestry Center are all within walking distance of each other). Scroll down to find information on how to get to each location using public transportation. And as always, use TriMet’s trip planning page to enter your starting location and the ending location of the attraction to get a detailed trip itinerary.
