“hands-on, interactive exhibits”

Founded in 1964 in Portland, Oregon, the World Forestry Center is a nonprofit educational institution. Our mission is to educate and inform people about the world's forests and trees, and their importance to all life, in order to promote a balanced and sustainable future. All new hands-on, interactive exhibits that are fun for the whole family are waiting to be explored at the Discovery Museum. You can get harnessed in and hoisted up 45 feet to see a bird’s-eye-view of the forest, or take a wet-free raft ride in Class IV rapids. Climb underneath the forest to see the life below, or try your smoke-jumping skills! Round out your adventure with video journeys to Siberia, China, South Africa and Brazil to learn about trees of the world. Come explore, discover and grow at the Discovery Museum! Museum and gift store open daily, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
