The Architectural Heritage Center connects people and place, past and future. Each year we organize public programs, walking tours, and gallery exhibitions on a wide variety of topics related to Portland’s built environment. The Architectural Heritage Center is owned and operated by the Bosco-Milligan Foundation.
Face coverings are not required for visitors; however, we strongly encourage those who are not vaccinated to continue to wear a face covering in an effort to protect those vulnerable in our community. Many people may opt to continue to wear a face covering when visiting our venue, including young children who are not yet eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine or those with a health condition that prevents them from being vaccinated.
