I try to come here monthly, and absolutely love it! Wether it's in the gardens or the museums, I find a new treasure every time I visit. Also, depending on the season, you will find something unique about the gardens, as different flowers are blooming year round. It's enjoyable to sit and have lunch, and just take in the beauty...

I had not been to the Huntington Library for 30years and really looked forward to visiting with my wife. Overall the library has vastly improved and my wife and i thoroughly enjoyed some of the art collections, library, and grounds that we had the time to see. 5 Stars My only critical comment would be around the 1919 restaurant. My... More

For those that have had enough of Hollywood and shopping and would like to spend a day of cultural contemplation, the Huntington library, art and botanic garden is well worth a visit. Thanks to Henry and Arabella Huntington, who were enormously rich, you can enjoy their outstanding collection of books, a less interesting art collection, mostly portraits, and a fantastic... More

The grounds are extremely beautiful however the tea room I consider over priced. They used to have a buffet style and the food, dessert, fruit was delicious. Now a new company came and change the menu to a fix menu for $35.00 a person for few finger sandwiches. Not worth it sorry to say.

One day was not enough to savour all the treats at the Huntington! But a sample of the library, art and gardens left me satisfied and eager to return again!

For a great look at European classical art this side of the Getty, I recommend the Huntington Library located in the San Gabriel valley east of Los Angeles. Also has a large landscape of beautiful gardens.

The gardens are beautiful. The "Desert" and "Japanese" gardens were my favourites. But, that does not diminish the care and attention that has been lavished on all the other gardens. In addition to the Australian and Chinese gardens there is also a garden dedicated to children. The library and galleries are easily accessible and the staff on site were knowledgable... More
