Pacific Asia Museum is housed in a Chinese Qing dynasty inspired mansion. The galleries surround a charming courtyard garden containing a koi pond, rock sculptures, graceful trees and plants that reflect the beauty of the changing seasons. The first cultural center for art, music, lectures and films in Pasadena, the beautiful building is a California State Historic Landmark and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

The second floor of the museum overlooks the garden and features a conservatory/auditorium and a meeting room with elegant Chinese furniture and décor. If you wish, after dining or meeting, you may enjoy a guided tour of the galleries and garden. Special demonstrations and lectures may be arranged for an additional fee.
