Small when compared to "top-tier" museums, the Simon nonetheless has spacious, well-lit, uncrowded galleries that allow art lovers to gaze as long as they like at works by Cezanne, Renoir, Van Gogh, Goya, Rembrand...
This is a lovely museum that has a nice selection of artwork to represent the different periods - Renaissance, Classic, Impressionist... Perfect for someone like me who gets easily overwhelmed by large museums

It's just around the corner from the Pacific Asia Museum, so visits to the two museums can easily be combined.
The Pasadena Museum is a wonderful, small museum, hidden away on Union St. The exhibits change with frequency and are dedicated to celebrating California artists, exploring every genre.
