Pasadena is alive with remarkable art collections, architecture, literature, and entertainment, so plan carefully to fit in everything on your must-see list.
Want to feast your eyes on Gainsborough’s masterpiece, “The Blue Boy”? It’s here at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens. Not to be outdone, Pasadena’s Norton Simon museum also has one of the most remarkable private art collections in the world. And don’t miss the Pacific Asia Museum, among just four institutions in the country dedicated exclusively to the arts and culture of Asia and the Pacific Islands.
