Endowed by industrialist, financier and philanthropist Norton Simon (1907-1993), the Norton Simon Museum that bears his name is an extraordinary window into art and antiquities. This museum houses the single largest collection of art assembled by one man. Here you will find art spanning seven centuries and exhibited both in the galleries and in the charming gardens. Simon collected 2,000 years worth of Hindu art, as well as works from Tibet, Nepal and Cambodia. In addition, there are works by Rembrandt, Rubens, Goya, Botticelli, Renoir, Van Gogh and many more. The bookstore has an outstanding collection of art books. See their website for further details.
