Our Mission:

We celebrate and preserve Louisville’s Portland Neighborhood’s rich cultural narrative through the power of art, community, and heritage. We inspire creativity through neighborhood pride with engaging artistic experiences that promote exploration and play. Through community-led programming, we connect diverse groups to foster cross-cultural understanding. Our collections and exhibits educate visitors about our community’s history and traditions while bridging the 9th Street divide and making our city whole again. Our goal is to create an inclusive cultural hub that enriches the lives of all who call Portland home, through the transformative power of art.

PLEASE READ: Unfortunately, the collection is currently unavailable to the public for research. Check back for regular updates as the museum works toward making the collection accessible.
