The Museum Store





The Garden Cafe is located in the Museum's celebrated and serene sculpture garden. The Garden Cafe is operated by Patina. I had the Cobb salad and it was fresh, crisp, varied, and quite refreshing on a very hot day in Pasadena.






The Museum Store offers a wide selection of art books, prints, posters, cards and unique gifts. Pick up a family guide to the Norton Simon Museum. It is wonderful for children to discover all there is to see.
