A local family member brought me here and I spent the day with my jaw dropped at all the beauty surrounding me. The Huntington is the perfect place for people who love art, culture, nature, and beauty. Can’t wait to return!!

You MUST visit the Huntington Library. Such a beautiful and history-filled place. So many people that live in So Cal have never even been here and they should! Tourists should include this location when visiting.

Today, was my first visit to the beautiful Huntington Library. Idyllic grounds exceptionally maintained. The Chinese garden magically takes you away.

There is so much to see here. We spent 4 hours here and didn’t cover everything. The gardens are expansive and pretty, plenty of it is recognisable from movies. The art galleries and museum are impressive. There’s not much shade so bring plenty of sunscreen...More

The Huntington Library in Pasadena is a must see if you enjoy history, art, botanical gardens, etc. The grounds are gorgeous and make the trek between the various venues delightful. This past year “The Blue Boy” famous painting by Gainsborough is being restored right there...More

The collections were stunning, as were the gardens. We especially enjoyed the Science exhibits and the dessert garden. We visited an estimated two days before the anticipated blooming of the corpse flower—disappointing to miss it, but so cool to see it and learn about it.

There are so many different collections there my guess is that something will always be in bloom, regardless of the season. Our climate is so mild - plenty of beautiful things bloom in winter. But I agree with the other... More

Sorry for the late response (just saw it). Also sorry that I don’t remember an oval structure at the entrance. Just that I enjoyed the gardens completely.
