|About these ratings|
The Pittock Mansion is one of Portland's few historic attractions and definitely one of the most unique. Built by Henry Pittock, the founder and publisher of the Oregonian newspaper, this 22-room mansion marries French-Renaissance and Victorian design and is decorated in early 20th-century furnishings. Guided tours of the mansion are offered, allowing you to learn how the high life was lived here in Portland. Also stop by the gift shop, which sells handcrafted items made by local vendors. Even if you're not interested in exploring the house (or paying the entrance fee), consider taking a stroll around the spectacular grounds for free.
The Pittock Mansion is open to the public every day between February and December from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. with extended hours offered during the summer months. Entry to the mansion costs about $8 for adults and $5 for children. For more information, check out the Pittock Mansion website.
