Portlandia's Lewis and Clark skit was filmed at the Oregon Historical Society in downtown Portland.

Fun Fact:
Portland's founders Francis Pettygrove and Asa Lovejoy (from Portland, Maine and Boston, Massachusetts respectively) each wanted to name the future Portlandia after his home town. They flipped a coin (best two out of three) to decide which it should be, and Pettygrove won. You can see the 'Portland Penny' that kept Portland from being named Boston in the Oregon Historical Society's Museum.
