  • An awesome collection with lots of unique sites. Makes for a great addition to an afternoon stroll in Pasadena. The only thing that I found to be confusing was the location of the entrance. The entrance was not clearly labeled to I ended up entered the museum from the back and went through it all backwards. This could have been easily resolved with some rope at the entrance. Just seemed silly that nearly everyone walks right passed the entrance.
  • Pieces are marvelous. Security guard and front desk are so kind. Its peaceful and quiet and the place is spotless
  • The museum is open! But make sure to look out for the admissions desk (down the main hall, first door on the left). Admission seems a bit pricey given the size of the museum, but being in the courtyard is free. While a beautiful space the museum seems to have a limited collection, and the doors are always kept closed, and therefore seem a bit unwelcoming.
  • The museum is not open yet but the Grand Reopening will take place on December 8th Its looking real good!
  • Well they arent open to the public yet they are closed for retrofitting my husband wirks there and toik me for a walk thru alot of big changes itll be beautiful the grand reopenibg will be held on december 8 plan on visiting they are emptying and cleaning out the koi pond and getting ready to bring the koi to their new home!
