WHERE IS THE CAPITOL HISTORY GATEWAY?

The Capitol History Gateway, a project of the Oregon State Capitol Foundation, is the Capitol visitor experience at the Capitol — not a location. Visitor Services staff produces this award-winning programming. Elements include displays, semi-permanent and rotating exhibits, virtual and public tours, and educational events and presentations. Heritage partners throughout the state to participate. This gives visitors a glimpse at each community’s rich culture and traditions. Capitol visitors from around the world are inspired to learn more about Oregon’s diverse cultures and inspired to learn more about our unique state.

Plan your next visit to immerse yourself in Capitol History Gateway programming to learn about legislative process, inspiring stories of individuals and groups who shaped our state’s history, and how easy it is for you to engage in our democracy.

Thank you to our donors, purchasers of Pacific Wonderland license plates and community partners for making the Capitol History Gateway possible for all who visit and work in our Capitol.
