Norton Simon Museum

I visited the Norton Simon Museum with my friend Ryan while attending the Astro-Viz Workshop in Pasadena, California. What a lovely collection of art, and a manageable size—just enough to fill you up without seeming overindulgent.

The museum has a strong Asian art collection, European and Modern paintings, and a sculpture garden.
