About Us

MISSION OF PORTLAND CHILDREN’S MUSEUM 

We develop innovative problem-solvers through playful learning experiences that strengthen relationships between children and their world. 

 ORGANIZATION OVERVIEW 

Portland Children’ Museum consists of three aligned entities: (1) the Museum, where exhibits and programs serve the public both on- and off-site, (2) Opal School, a tuition-based pre-school and K-5 public charter school, and (3) the Museum Center for Learning, which researches fresh approaches to education and provides professional development to educators. In this description, Museum, School, and Center refer to the specific entity, while Portland Children’s Museum (or, “the organization”) refers to the whole. 

 OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION  

In the Portland metro area, 47% of students are children of color. At Portland Children's Museum, we strive to have our guest and school families reflect that diversity, and for our staff and board to be equally diverse. We are committed to eliminating barriers to access and equity and see a diverse workforce as a key step toward this goal. We actively seek to recruit, hire, promote, and retain a diverse workforce—one that welcomes and engages people from every background. We value our staff members, volunteers, and board members and their individual backgrounds, which further our ability to serve and learn from the diverse families that enrich our community. We invite you to join us on our journey
