Pittock Mansion Tours

385 reviews
Once home to Henry and Georgiana Pittock, Portland’s original power couple, the Pittock Mansion sits on 46 acres (18.6 hectares) of land and contains exhibits featuring artwork and artifacts from the early 1900s. The house is perched on a hill 1,000 feet (305 meters) above downtown and offers sweeping views of Portland and the Cascade Range. 

The Basics
Inside the French Renaissance–style mansion you can peruse the rooms and admire artworks such as glass sculptures, paintings, and handcrafted tiles. Outside, stroll through the grounds (known as Pittock Acres Park) and explore a large network of hiking trails. 

Many full-day and half-day Portland city tours include a visit to Pittock Mansion along with other local attractions such as Nob Hill, the Pearl District, and Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area. Small-group tours offer a personalized experience, while some excursions also include round-trip transportation from downtown hotels.

When to Get There
The mansion is open from February through December and is closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Summer is a lovely time to enjoy the grounds, when the weather is typically warm and sunny. During the Christmas season, the mansion’s festive holiday decorations are a must-see.
