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.
The museum was an absolute delight and well worth the price of admission.
