    Don't hug the statues. You can't touch the statues you will get busted.

    Absolutely NO Food or Drinks inside the building! Even baby formula! That's absolutely ridiculous but you can go outside to their garden cafe for a decent meal that's highly over priced instead. :/

    Pasadena’s Norton Simon Museum has an encyclopedic collection. Don’t miss the fantastic Indian art, installed by Greg Walsh of Frank Gehry’s office, and Francesco di Giorgio Martini’s Fidelity, 1495.
