Free First Thursdays at Portland Art Museum are back starting January 4, 2024.
Located in the heart of downtown, Portland Art Museum is internationally renowned for exciting art experiences. On the first Thursday of the month, our community gets open access to one of our city’s top attractions along with the museum’s new theater.
Here’s how you can participate in this event.
Free First Thursdays at Portland Art Museum
On the first Thursday of each month, the Portland Art Museum and PAM CUT Tomorrow Theater offer free admission. The museum brings global and regional art, culture and history to our city.
Did you know the Portland Art Museum is the oldest in the Pacific Northwest?
The Portland Art Museum is so much more than sterile galleries and rows of paintings on the wall. They truly bring exhibits to life and allow you to travel back in time and explore new worlds. What I love most about the museum are the seasonal exhibits, which include interactive features and an abundance of color, texture and timeless intrigue. It’s also a great place to get in touch with our local history with special exhibitions throughout the year.
Here’s how you can get free admission once a month.
Free First Thursday Admission
Beginning January 4, 2024, museum admission is free on the first Thursday of every month from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Free First Thursday tickets can be reserved online one week in advance and are also available at the door.
Free Theater Admission
The newly opened PAM CUT Tomorrow Theater in Southeast Portland will also be free on the first Thursday of the month.
Whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned art enthusiast, make the most of your trip by visiting on free admission days.
More Free Admission Opportunities
The museum also offers quarterly free admission day, usually on Sunday. Another way to get free admission to the museum is through Bank of America’s Museums on Us program. You can also get two free tickets from the Multnomah County Library Discovery Pass.
Children 17 and under always receive free admission along with veterans and active-duty military.
Portland Art Museum is at 1219 SW Park Ave. in Portland. For more information, visit the museum’s website.
