Museums for All
An initiative of the Institute of Museum and Library Services
Museums for All is a cooperative initiative between ACM and IMLS to offer a signature access program that encourages families of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum habits. As a member of this program, the Oregon Historical Society offers free admission and a 10% discount at our Museum Store to individuals and families (up to four) presenting an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card.
Tips for Visiting the Oregon Historical Society
We ask that when you visit the Oregon Historical Society that you help us to ensure our collections remain safe. Please consider leaving any items that need to be checked by our front desk/security at home or at the hotel to speed entry.
- Do not bring large bags, backpacks, or luggage into the museum, as you will be asked to leave them in our lockers. If possible, leave such items on the tour or school bus or in a hotel room.
- A reminder: no accommodations are available for eating bag lunches within the museum except in the Plaza courtyard.
- Do not bring any weapons, including firearms, knives including pocket or Swiss Army style knives, pepper spray, mace, etc. into the museum.
The safety of the Oregon Historical Society visitors, volunteers, staff and collections is of the highest importance. Thank you for adhering to our policy.
