Since that last "museum open" announcement over a year ago, the museum has emigrated from its original location in San Mateo and is relocating to Portland, Oregon.  It is currently squeezed into a 6'x13' space under the east ramp of Hawthorne Bridge over the Willamette River.

A new email list has been created, so if you want updates to appear in your emailbox, send a note to If you are Facebook-centric, head here and like it!

The museum participates in First Friday - Portland's Eastside Artwalk and welcomes visitors every first Friday of the month.  Each month has a theme and November's is "Collections." Museums have traditionally been founded on collections, and the Zymoglyphic Museum is no different.  The curator's childhood museum forms its historical core - rocks, shells, marine animals, stamps, and many others. Some of the current collections are direct descendants of those originals.
