Beautiful gardens, well maintained and varied. The Desert garden has beautiful succulents, and scurrying squirrels and lizards, blooming cacti. Something for everyone with the Chinese garden, Australian Garden, Japanese Gardens. You will need an entire day to see everything. It's very large and extensive. Wear comfortable shoes The docents are helpful, and the tea room delicious. Our server, Ana Maria... More

Whether you want to walk in the extensive garden or visit the library and art collection, this venue is magnificent. Don't miss the Rose Garden, it was one of our favorite spots.

This is an authentic Chinese Gadren model after a garden in China. Almost all the materials where imported from China.

Specifically came out to see the gardens. We were able to get on the first free botanical garden tour of the day. Included with paid admission. Our guide Robert was the best! It took about an hour and a half, quite warm day, but with all the foliage, there were cool spots to enjoy the views. The Japanese Gardens was... More

Like the Borghese Villa in Rome, the Huntington Library and gardens is a treasure unto itself, and within its confines are further treasures. They frequently change art exhibits, and there is always something new to see. Recently saw the "Van Gogh and Friends" show, and could not take my eyes off of the pieces by Vincent on loan from the... More

After about 3 hours I visited all the art galleries. It was nice and cool in there. I had to remind myself to slow down and take in the paintings, sculptures, furniture and decor. My... More
