The Huntington

The Hunington consists of a Library, Art Musuem, and Botanical Gardens. Encompassing about 120 acres, the botanical gardens feature 16 stunning themed gardens.


The Children's Garden encompassing approx. 30,000 square feet is a popular destination within the 120 acre Huntington Botanical Gardens. The Huntington is home to world acclaimed art and artifacts as well as the internationally recognized Botanical Collections. 


Featuring several innovative interactive exhibits, the Garden provides "hands-on" experiences primarily for young children ages 2-8. In four separately themed areas exploring primary natural elements-air, water, earth and fire, whimsical displays and playful interactives invite and engage children to better understand scientific principles related to their natural world.


Featuring evocative exhibits such as vortex water bells, pebble chimes, magnetic sand and the prism tunnel, The Garden continues to mature and to capture the imaginations and to inspire Children in a dynamic, safe and beautiful learning environment. 


The Huntington’s Library is an independent research center for the humanities that welcomes qualified researchers from all over the world. Over 1,700 researchers from over 30 countries conduct research in the Library every year.


At the Art Galleries you can see American art from the late 17th to the late 20th century in the Virginia Steele Scott Galleries of American Art, and European art from the 15th to the early 20th century in the Huntington Art Gallery, the original Huntington residence. Find smaller, focused exhibitions in the Works on Paper Room in the Huntington Art Gallery and in the Susan and Stephen Chandler Wing of the Scott Galleries. Temporary exhibitions are on view in the The MaryLou and George Boone Gallery.




The Huntington's gardens remain open for visitors with online reservations. The Huntington Library, and Art Museum will reopen on April 17. Attendance will be limited to 25% of capacity and visitors must obtain tickets in advance at huntington.org.
