Seriously, where can you see a Van Gogh, Edward Hopper and a Guttenberg Bible in one place? Plus about a gazillion roses. And succulents and Irises...and and and.... A must do for anyone visiting LA/Pasadena who does not want to spend every minute in a tourist-y place.

My son took us to visit these beautiful gardens while we were visiting him in California. Pick a beautiful weather day and go check this place out. We thoroughly enjoyed it and the weather could not have been any better.

This attraction has it all--notable paintings, important manuscripts, an astonishing botanical garden. The restaurants are far better than run of the mill museum fare. The gift shop is terrific. Wear good walking shoes and allow plenty of time. I logged 8500 steps on my Fitbit wandering around for several hours. Next time I'll allow an entire day.

The grounds are amazing. So many distinctly different gardens to wander through and several building to stroll through to view the variety of outstanding art collections. This place can easily consume a day and would be well worth the time.

Let me begin by distinguishing between the Huntington Gardens, which are wonderful, stunning, excellent, and the newly opened Cafe. The Cafe is totally forgettable. It all looks so wonderful until you taste the products. We didn't try everything, but everything we had was poorly done. The pizzas look great, but the two different slices (one overcooked and crispy and cold,... More

We visited on the recommendation of family. We were not disappointed. The grounds were beautifully maintained and I even saw my first Van Gogh and Monet paintings! We were not able to see everything in one visit so if we are in the area again we will definitely return!

This museum is known for the gardens but I enjoyed seeing the mansion with all the art work and historical books and manuscripts even more. It was wonderful to see Thomas Gainsborough's portrait of The Blue Boy up close. I enjoyed seeing the french furniture and the beautiful tapestries and the famous sculpture of Diana the huntress. It was a... More
