As far as PAM getting more people through the doors they could increase their fund raising efforts, possibly snag an endowment from a local corporation, and create a free & open museum for the city (special exhibitions still would charge a fee). I came from Cleveland where the wonderful CMA has free admission to the general collection. This allowed people to simply drop in periodically, take in small manageable chunks of the collection and make year round use of their museum. In Portland I assume that the $10.00 fee keeps some people from just dropping in - instead making it a once a year trip.


Individual PAM memberships start at $45 (it's tax deductible)...you can go as often as you want and look at one piece at a time. You can see a lot in 20 minutes of a lunch hour.
