    I was most impressed by the baroque-style (not era, per se) pieces in the Huntington Art Gallery. Even this gallery is too much for a day. I don't live close but am considering annual membership.

    Best in Spring and Fall. Summer gets a bit too hot and in Winter, everything's hibernating and they use the chance to close things down and do work for Spring.
