If you want a nice quiet place to escape the Hustle of Pasadena Traffic. That and to peruse a nice collection of Oriental Art. Then my friend this is the place to go!

Beautiful, serene, educational, convenient to Old Town are a few adjectives I would use to describe this museum. The art and antiquities in here are wonderful. If you have any interest in Asian Art or artifacts this is a must see.
