    While the displayed collection at NSM is small there is a great variety. On the day of my visit I went right after work, which was great change of environment. Using my student ID, I was able to get free admission. But, I had to rush a bit through the galleries and take a quick stroll through the botanical garden as they close at 6pm. The basement floor has changing exhibit and on this occasion, they had an exhibit on printmaking in America – quite informative. Their gift shop is small, but they have a good collection of prints. I got a couple of 8×11 for only $3.50 each, which is not bad because other museums have the same for $6.

    This is, hands down, the best museum in the LA area. It has such a wide array of phenomenal art pieces in such a gorgeous complex. The building and grounds are spectacular. Eating in the outdoor cafe in the Japanese garden is really a lovely experience. I can’t wait to go back!

    A beautiful but small museum. Has a wonderful outdoor area with a large pond and sculpture garden. They do have several paintings from “celebrity” artists like Rembrandt, Picasso, and Van Gogh. Free if you have student ID. They also have a private parking lot with ample space.

    If you’re ever in the Pasadena area you need to check out the Norton Simon Museum. This museum may be on the smaller side, but it contains works of art from the 14th to 19th centuries by famous European artists like Rembrandt, Picasso, Van Gogh, Cezzane, and many more. You will also find Asian and Indian art, historical items of interest, as well as a sculpture garden. This is the prefect place to start your afternoon. It’s conveniently located near the 110 freeway on Colorado Blvd and a few blocks from Downtown Pasadena, which is complete with many shops and great restaurants. I highly recommend a visit to this special museum, which is undoubtedly one of LA’s secret gems.
