If you’re ever looking to find a little culture in Pasadena, you won’t have to look far. Pasadena is brimming with so many great museums that both adults and children can enjoy. And on these hot summer days, I can’t think of anything better to do than spend the day in a cool air-conditioned museum. Here are some of the best museums that Pasadena has to offer:
Norton Simon Museum: This museum houses a large collection of works from South Asian sculptures to works by some of Europe's greatest artists. They also exhibit films, dance performances and modern and contemporary art. You can spend the day perusing some of Degas most beautiful paintings and then step out into the garden where you can enjoy a refreshment while observing the intricate sculptures that surround the beautifully serene pond.
Pasadena Museum of California Art: Dedicated to the exhibition of California art, architecture and design, PMCA boasts a collection of modern, eclectic and graphic works that explore the cultural dynamics and influences present in California.
