Love this museum, has a great courtyard to hang out in after viewing the small and intimate museum. Can be added on a walking tour of Old Pasadena.

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.

as an asian myself its something i am familiar with... but for non-asians they will enjoy the asian feel and will have an idea of how refined asian culture is. Drop by if you have time to spare.

This was always a hidden gem. It was recently put under the supervision of the University of Southern California and is being refurbished. Check the web, but it's currently supposed to reopen in May 2017.
