In light of the Novel Coronavirus outbreak, Portland Museum will be closed to the public until April 3rd. At that point, we will assess the situation and update this site. Our staff will continue to be hard at work, but to limit potential exposure, they will be splitting their time between the museum office and working remotely. Therefore, please feel free to contact us, and we will respond as soon as possible.
