The Portland Mausoleum is open to the public once a year, on Memorial Day. These are pictures from a few separate trips. The Mausoleum is 8 stories tall with changing styles of architecture and decoration. Some areas has crypts, some have cremains.

Cremains in the Portland Mauseoleum

One thing that is interesting about the mausoleum is how packed with remains and cremains it is. They are in the rooms, the hallways, nooks created by staircases and more.

Cremains around a staircase, a few more urns under the stairs next to the utility sink.

One of the older sections of the mausoleum. When I took the bulk of these photos the older sections had no electricity and were heavily water damaged. They have since been restored, the damage and smell from water intrusion largely repaired and windows cleaned.

Portland Mausoleum Crypts

The sheer number of crypts and cremains in the large building can be overwhelming.

Oaks Amusement Park from The Portland Mausoleum

One of the strangest experiences in the mausoleum is when the carnival style music from Oaks Amusement Park. You can see the rides and attractions from large windows.

An older picture from the mausoleum. Before the repairs the moisture made the air hard to deal with. On Memorial Day they’d run fans to try to mitigate the problem to little effect.

Portland Mausoleum Crypt

One of the ‘family rooms’ in the mausoleum. Many of the stained glass windows and a lot of the other decorations there celebrate the landscape of Oregon.
