Huntington Library is an amazing place to visit. It's 207 acres of land with 16 gardens, statutes, waterfalls, and art installations. It is open year-round and there is always something blooming. All gardens are themed and the atmosphere takes you places. Explore desert landscapes, chill at the Japanese garden, and smell some herbs in the herb garden. It's perfect for a cute date, family time, or even going by yourself!
They’ll be checking your tickets twice! So don’t put it away after the first time. I went on a weekend 11 AM and it wasn’t too busy. Parking was packed though. Lots of flowers and life here! If you go right, then you’ll hit the museum first. Its chilly in there so if it’s hot, go to the museum to cool off. They do have a kids area where kids can play with water and mist! They also have a greenhouse you can explore. The entire place is beautiful! I think they can add a bit more directions on floor or around the gardens. We got lost since it’s so big. Their gift shop things are so cute too!
An absolutely beautiful spot to check out for locals and tourists alike. Ticket prices are a bit high, but totally worth it! You gain access to the library, art gallery, and the expansive grounds with many acres of different themed gardens. My personal favourite is the Chinese Garden. You could easily spend an entire day here exploring the grounds, and because they’re so expansive, it never feels crowded, even on a busy summer day. There are also a number of food, drink, and coffee options on-site should you feel hungry. All in all a great experience, highly recommend checking it out!
This place is beautiful. Even on a day full of rain and cold weather we absolutely loved walking through and exploring everything this place has to offer. Plenty of plant scenery with a nice mixture of architecture, sculptures, and the galleries in between. The shop was fun to walk through and the coffee place had surprisingly delicious hot chocolate! Whether you have a few hours or a good chunk of the day to use you can definitely enjoy spending it here.
Huntington Library, is a very nice centrally located attraction that is well worth a visit. It is very quiet and completely different from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can imagine the mood when Henry bought it more than 100 years ago. Looking at the hand-painted maps hanging on the wall in the exhibition hall, imagine the scene of the year for yourself. It's so beautiful. . It is a pity that the main building is not open due to rotating exhibits, which is a pity. I can only visit other small pavilions. I spent 45 minutes in Virginia Steele Scott Galleries, which is very worth seeing. The gardens and botanical gardens here are very beautiful. I like it here very much. There are many people on weekends. If you have time, it is best to go on weekdays, which is quieter. I can really visit here for a day. It is recommended to go early. I arrived around 1 pm, and I feel that 4 hours is definitely not enough.
What a place. You have museums, library, shops, dining, and amazing gardens. This place has it all. Spend a day or a couple hours. Find one of many quick bite dining options and keep walking this beautiful botanical garden. Tons of places to sit and take in the scenery and relax those feet. Price: $25 per adult Parking: Free and plenty No lines to get in and plenty of staff working. Great for families or a date. This place needs a Boutique bed-and-breakfast. If one could take a stroll at night and sleep in this tranquil environment then wake up to a beautiful breakfast over looking a section of the park taking in that aroma of the flowers and the sounds of the birds that would be awesome.
