The Pacific Asia Museum is dedicated to the preservation, promotion, and understanding of the arts and culture of Asia and the Pacific. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the museum’s historic building has served as a center for art, culture and learning in Pasadena since its construction in 1924 by pioneering collector and entrepreneur Grace Nicholson (1877-1948) as her residence.
Experience two of Pasadena’s more unique homes that are now noted museums – the Pacific Asia Museum, once the home of visionary philanthropist and art collector Grace Nicholson, and the Gamble House, the former home of David and Mary Gamble of the Procter and Gamble Company, a study in American Arts and Crafts-Style architecture. On the National Register of Historic Places, both of these homes are architectural gems housing significant and diverse collections.
