Dedicated to Curiosity.
Welcome to Portland's Museum and bar of experiences. Located right off of Stark St. in South East Portland at The Luxury Bread Building, Experiment PDX is a space for arts, science, curiosity, and creation. Experiment is by Portland for Portland and features classes, courses, workshops, and lectures by local artists, intellectuals, and culturalists. We host programs and events for all ages, not excluding adult events. Trivia nights, galleries, tastings, and nerdery of all manner is encouraged at Experiment because grown-ups like fun things too, right?
And did we mention an artisan bar?
