Oregon Museum of Science and Industry

Oregon Museum of Science and Industry

If you are looking for an adventure through all aspects of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, then you will want to visit the nationally-renowned Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, or OMSI. Located less than ten minutes from Hotel Modera, the science center offers a wide variety of exhibits that promote problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaboration. For example, Pompeii: The Exhibition features a 4D theater experience and almost 200 artifacts from the perfectly preserved civilization that was wiped out almost 2000 years ago. You can also step aboard the USS Blueback Submarine which was the US Navy’s last non-nuclear, fast attack submarine and was the basis for the film The Hunt for Red October. Other science center features include a planetarium, motion simulator, and 4D theater that plays a variety of documentaries and even the latest blockbuster films. This is one museum where the entire family will have lots of fun and maybe even learn a thing or two.

Take a Walk on the Wild Side

With summer vacation in full swing, now is the perfect time to visit the Oregon Zoo. After a quick 10-minute drive from Hotel Modera, you will find yourself at the gates of the popular zoo and all the extraordinary exhibits on display there. The African Savannah section of the zoo contains such favorites as giraffes, hippos, and rhinos. Of course, if you are looking for a bit more fun and games, you will want to check out the chimpanzee exhibit. One of the highlights of the zoo is the Penguinarium, where you are able to watch penguins waddling on the shore and swimming below the waterline. The Oregon Zoo has so many fantastic exhibits that you may need to spend more than a day there just to experience it all. Whether your favorite animals are monkeys, polar bears, or even elephants, The Oregon Zoo has something for the entire family to enjoy.

There is nothing quite like strolling through the collections of the Portland Art Museum on a rainy afternoon. Of course, this museum is the perfect destination any day of the week, except on Mondays when it is closed.

If you hurry, you can see the Constructing Identity exhibition that explores the ideas of African American identity and community before it ends on June 18. Other exhibitions include Quest for Beauty: The Architecture, Landscapes, and Collections of John Yeon and Reunited: Francescuccio Ghissi’s St. John Altarpiece, both of which will be available throughout the month of June. Additionally, the museum has permanent collections of American, Asian, European, and Native American Art and even photography, graphic art, and silver displays.
