  • 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!  more »
  • 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...  more »
  • 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.  more »

  • Temporarily closed while they do seismic retrofitting of the building and remodeling to add more exhibition space. It will reopen early 2017. The museum is housed in a beautiful building with a large peaceful courtyard and has an interesting selection of art and works from various Asian countries and also has many programs and events. Worth checking out

  • very small, very nice. i liked they had a little modern art as well. the courtyard is pretty and nice to hang out in.
  • A quaint Asian museum in the heart of old Pasadena. The general admission is free for the permanent exhibits but there is a fee for other art galleries. The PAM is a small museum with a tiny garden and a pond filled with koi fishes.
  • I've visited twice so far. It is peaceful, few people, nice main collection of wooden statues and their book reading room is awesome because they have cultural clothing one can wear and take fun pictures with. Their center court is beautiful, with a mini koi pond and several stone statues. The epic clothing in the gift shop is all marked down, yet still above an average budget, in my opinion. Will visit again eventually.
