Field Trips

Field trips to the Oregon Jewish Museum offer an in-depth study of our current exhibits.  Our programs are designed to meet the needs of your group, whether you are visiting as a group new to Jewish traditions and culture or have first-hand experience.  A trained museum educator will lead your group through our gallery and can speak about the history of Oregon’s Jewish community.  Student programs are designed to allow participants to experience learning in an interactive way using museum artifacts, reproductions, and hands-on activities.

Additionally, our education staff welcomes inquiries about your needs for custom programs.
