Description

Merchant's Description

Approximately 1,000 works from the permanent collection of 12,000 objects are on view in the Norton Simon Museum’s galleries and sculpture garden throughout the year. There are two temporary exhibition spaces within the Museum; the curatorial department mounts three to five exhibitions centered on the collection, and one special masterpiece loan, per year. To extend the impact of these exhibitions and to explore genres and themes within the permanent collection, the Museum offers six to ten free public programs per month, including scholarly lectures and symposia, adult education courses, music and dance performances and hands-on activities for children. Private tours are available by reservation.

    A jewel of a place. Spend a day there - well worth the drive and an incredible collection awaits.

    $8 for adults, FREE for students with ID. I was very impressed with their collection of modern art, particularly their Degas and Matisse pieces. The 20th Century room is full of Degas sculptures, which are worth checking out. Everyone loves the basement, which hosts a bounty of Southeast Asian sculptures... don't miss the Demon room. The sculpture garden is also pleasant to walk... More >>

    Students, being your student ID card to get in free.

    Please be polite to the gallery attendants. It's just courtesy and good karma.

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

    Lots of Degas, great Asian sculptures downstairs, and I really like the modern stuff in there too. Great pieces.
