The Timbers, who won the MLS championship with a thrilling win over Columbus, will display the MLS Cup at the Oregon Historical Society on Saturday and Sunday.

“There is no better place for the Timbers to share their historic achievement with the countless members of the Timbers Army than at the Oregon Historical Society,” said Executive Director Kerry Tymchuk in a statement.

In recent years, Marcus Mariota’s Heisman Trophy, the Seattle Seahawks’ Lombardi Trophy and the Stanley Cup have all been displayed at the historical society.

Admission is free, courtesy of the Timbers and Providence Health & Services.  Timbers merchandise will also be available.

The MLS Cup will be able to be seen from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and on Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
