Norton Simon Museum, Los Angeles Reviews

  • Absolutely “must visit” place for all art lovers. Outstanding collection of European art of 14-20 centuries. Interesting Indian/Asian part (even though I’m not a fan of that kind of art it was really curious and educating). Also there is a lovely peaceful garden with lots of sculptures of Rodin and other masters. The price is reasonable - $15 for adults. Free parking. And yes, you’re gonna spend some money in that gift shop.

  • One of the best museums around. Beautiful grounds with a very nice garden area. The art selection and quality is top of the line. There are world renown masterpieces here. Lots to see from different periods. Hard to see everything in one visit. Highly recommended.

  • This is one of my favorite museums in the country. I first visited roughly 25 years ago, and have enjoyed returning from time to time over the years. It's especially fun to have deep collections in a small Museum. Lots of South and Southeast Asian art, a large number of pieces by Degas, large numbers by other Impressionists, numerous Rodin sculptures, and a solid collection of Picasso works, to name my personal highlights.

  • This is the best art museum to take someone that's never been to an art museum. It's not huge so they won't get overwhelmed. It's just a good size museum where you can see everything in one day. Beautiful garden too.

  • A jewel, a must for anybody who loves the art. It's a pleasant surprise to discover to amount of old masters, impressionists and contemporary pieces this museum has on its permanent collection, more than any of the museums in the state. The only place in California where one can go to admire a Botticelli and a Raphael. Not as well-known as the Getty or LACMA, but being the proud owner of more renowned painters, it's been my favorite. Aptly located in beautiful Pasadena, a city whose personality matches the dynamics of the residents. Highly recommended!!
