“Spectacular exhibits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

We are members and have been there three times. The first time we saw a really great exhibit on public transportation , which included the mount Lowe railway and the fabulous rail lines from the past .
Presently the " I do, I do " exhibit is well curated and includes wedding dresses from about 1850 to 1950. Many have been donated by the family that also donated the site and the Fenyes mansion.
The dresses are exquisite and really could hold their ground against many fashion exhibits- like the metropolitan museum of art.
Don't miss the Fenyes mansion tour- very limited times. Really interesting and includes a fine plein air paintings .
Good gift shop, Finnish house if open and free parking.

“Small but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Love this little museum. They had a fabulous exhibit on the doo dah parade and also the trollies that used to exist all over Pasadena. The adjacent Finnish cottage was also open the day we went and was charming. Nice gift shop too.
