Know Before You Go
Multnomah County, where Portland is located, is in the “High Risk” category, meaning that indoor and outdoor recreational and entertainment facilities are allowed to operate, with restrictions. This applies to theaters, arenas, concert halls, gardens, museums and more.
Please check with attractions before visiting by going to their websites or calling them directly for the latest information.
Travel Portland is maintaining this list of major attractions and their opening statuses. We update this page regularly, but it’s still a good idea to check with individual attractions before you visit.
