Norton Simon Museum

I've lived less than five miles away from the Norton Simon Museum for over twenty years but never been inside.  For those who watch the Rose Parade on New Years, this is where they put some of the network cameras.  For film buffs, Jennifer Jones (Song of Bernadette) was married to Mr. Norton Simon for many years and was trustee of the museum.

Anyway, I finally decided to go take a look around.

Recognize this guy?

Yeah, guess Mr. Simon was big on Rodin.

Inside there were a ton of famous paintings I recognized.  But the highlight was the sculpture garden. I need to come back when the flowers are in bloom.
