Although currently closed, Pittock Mansion is committed to serving our community during this unprecedented time. So we are pleased to be able to offer everyone a virtual tour of the Mansion during our closure. In addition, we know parents and families are looking for online learning opportunities and we are grateful for the opportunity to help. All the materials for our Discovery Program for onsite school visits are available in the PDF gallery portion of the virtual tour.
About the Pittock Mansion: Built in 1914, Pittock Mansion tells the story of Portland’s transformation from pioneer town to modern, industrialized city through the history and legacy of one its most influential families, the Pittocks. Saved from demolition by dedicated citizens in 1964, the Mansion and surrounding estate was purchased by the City of Portland and opened to the public as a historic house museum.
In 2007, the nonprofit Pittock Mansion Society took over museum operations. The Society works in collaboration with Portland Parks & Recreation to operate and preserve the historic buildings. Pittock Mansion is supported by general admission, memberships, donations, grants, and museum store purchases.
