Norton Simon Museum Reviews
Almost every old master you've ever heard of is on display. Paintings, statues and pieces of art are everywhere you look. Take time to enjoy things, including a relaxing snack in the Garden Cafe. more »
ローズパレードの起点になっている美術館です。どの展示も本当に美しく、美術に興味がある方なら時間を作ってでも行くべき場所です。 more »It is a museum that is the starting point of the Rose Parade. All the exhibits are really beautiful, and if you are interested in art, you should make time to go.
Amazing museum! They have a soothing nice cafe in the back where you can have great drinks and snacks. It's an excellent place for escape and admire breathtaking artworks by the old masters. Security is very tight here and with good reason. They are protecting and preserving millions worth of artwork from legendary artists from centuries ago. However, they are a very friendly staff. This is indeed one of the best museums in the nation.
A wonderful way to spend a Saturday, as a member I’m constantly receiving updates on new events that are happening every month. These events could be opening of a new exhibit, a sketching class with an instructor, discount and sales on coffee table books or artist manifesto’s. It’s a very quiet museum, of course the impressionistic art is what most people go for, but I enjoy the more modern works. Take the time to walk outside and go around the little pond. The café outdoors has great seating, adequate wine for a good gossip session with your best friend.
