Nice place if you're into that sort of thing 12/28/2005

If you are interested in art, gardens, statues, architecture, and other European things, then you might enjoy this place. They have a lot of galleries and European artifacts for you to enjoy. I also believe that they have a tearoom and serve afternoon tea, although I hear it is somewhat expensive. Admission used to be free, with a suggested donation, but now I believe they charge an admission fee. more

Beutiful 12/25/2005

The Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens are simply beautiful. The library hosts many important artifacts from history. Included is an original Guttenburg bible. But above all, the Huntington Library offers an incredible Botanical Gardens. Gardens and vegetation from around the world cover the large area. An Austrailian section details the dry desert gardens. The Japanese Garden is simply unbelievable. A peaceful pebble garden rests next to a wonderful collection of bonsai trees. The Huntington Library is a great day trip for a wonderful walk. more

A must-see museum/garden 11/13/2005

Don't let its name fool you. This is not a library but a whole lot more. The Huntington Library is a museum as well as a garden. It has a prestigious collection of fine art, and its garden containing many variety of cacti and other plants is also gorgeous. A walk through the grounds will make you want to live here! There is an admission fee but the place and its surroundings will make it worth it. more

a perfect day with your sweetie 10/22/2005

The Huntington library and gardens is one of the most beautiful museums I have ever been to. It is the home of Henry Huntington, who I believe made a lot of money in the railroads. This place is home to Pinky and Blue Boy, as well as many other paintings. The gardens are gorgeous. My personal favorite is the Japanese garden with a gong and all (legend has is high school kids a many have been able to scale the walls to ring the gong in the middle of the night...and I believe they have come out alive). It is a relaxing place to visit, and if you're into really relaxing check out where Huntington and his wife are entombed for eternity. more

Take advantage of their free day! 9/27/2005

The Huntington Gardens are a fabulous place, though the $15 admission (for non-members) can get pricey, especially for a family. The first thursday of the month is free. it is super crowded during the summer, but it is a great way to see the gardens. The chidren's garden is especially nice -- with lots of water for chidren to play in and things for them to smell, touvh and experiance. However, you might have to wait, for a very long time, on weekends and in the summer. more

wonderful! 8/30/2005

The Huntington Library and Gardens in Pasadena is an absolute treasure. The gardens are absolutely beautiful and pristine. I also enjoy the relaxing ponds and streams of the Japanese Koi fish. This is a place that if you live in the area, you should visit at least once. You may find something you enjoy that you thought you might not have been interested in. This place is very kid friendly as well. more

A children's exploratory garden 8/25/2005

The Huntington Library and Gardens in Pasadena has one of the best children's gardens around. Kids can run through a 30 foot tunnel, make music by dropping pebbles, experience mist and rain, see a rainbow, splash in the stream and play with water fountains. Beautifully set-up, the Huntington has done a spectacular job in making a very child-friendly garden. Be warned, however, you kids will get wet! So, bring an extra set of clothes and plan a picnic for a full experience. One a month on the first Thursday, admission is free to the public. Otherwise, there's an entrance fee for non-members. more

Art Library and Botancial Gardens 8/21/2005

The place is huugeeee! It’ll take you a long time to visit all the sections. You should probably plan the whole day there. I also think you should see the places you like first in case you don’t get to everything. The botanical garden is beautiful and big with lots of unique types of flowers and trees, rose garden, Japanese garden, etc. Great place to relax and take a stroll. They’re also a library of old books and artifacts and an art gallery. The Wedding Planner starring Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey and Memoirs of a Geisha had few scenes filmed there. more

great place to visit 8/20/2005

Great art, beautiful gardens, traditional tea room, great for whole family. It's the place I 'run off to' most often -- either by myself, with family, or with friends. This landscape of endless lawns with areas dedicated to a variation of flowers is absolutely three spot. On the "Free" day (first Thursday of the month), you may make your trip even better. more

Huntington Library 8/18/2005

Even during sweltering Pasadena summer days, visitors linger outdoors to soak up the Garden of Eden-like serenity. A constant stream of families and courting couples meander through the ambrosial rose gardens. Originally a private home, the Huntington still exudes the Old-World elegance of a stately mansion. Admission: Adults $15; seniors $12; students $10; youth (5-11) $6. Admission is free on the first Thursday of every month. more

Educational Experience 8/17/2005

The Huntington Library is three things in one place hidden away in the middle of a residential neighborhood. It is a library, an art gallery, and a botanical garden. You will find a collection of rare documents and fine works of century old art. It is a great learning discovery for all ages. For a real bargain, you can get in for free on the first Thursday of every month. more

Most fantastic gardens and library 8/12/2005

The Huntington is a real treat for the book lover and garden lover. Being both, this is truly a slice of heaven for me and my family to visit. We take our young daughter with us as we stroll through the gardens. We particularly enjoy the Japanese gardens - they're absolutely breath-taking. The recently completed Children's garden is also wonderful. There, we can let her run around and enjoy herself. The tea room is also a treat. Having a very well behaved child (hey - when she's eating, she's happy!), we can even enjoy it as a family (reservations are always helpful). The library has copies of rare and delightfully historic books. There is also an art and furniture gallery. An enjoyable treat that you can spend days wandering around. more

Wonderful Way to spend a day at any age 8/6/2005

Before I was a mom, I used to come here and leisurely stroll the gardens, be amazed at the texts, and lounge around in the Japanese garden looking at the Koi. Now, I rush with my 3 year old, barely looking at anything, hoping there won’t be a huge line at the children’s garden, and hoping he’ll hit the sand before the fountains and not the other way around (rarely the case). We will generally drag both of our tired bodies out hours later, both of us having gotten too much sun, one of us lucky enough to be able to sleep on the way home. Either way, the Huntington manages to delight, whether you’re three and in the sand, or significantly older and , I say wistfully, in the air conditioning of the library. more
