summary

The new exhibit program for Pittock Mansion combines fresh interpretive graphics and engaging interactive experiences to tell the story of the mansion. Interpretive themes explore the lives of Henry Pittock, Oregonian publisher, and his family as well as the early history of Portland’s founding families. As visitors tour the mansion, graphics interpret the rich architectural details, how each room was used by the family, and how it is decorated today. Outside, visitors find a panoramic view of the city and an exploration of how the grounds have changed since 1914, when the Pittocks built the mansion.
