The Huntington proudly recommends The Langham Huntington, Pasadena, the official hotel and resort of The Huntington.


The Huntington encompasses 207 acres of land in Southern California’s San Gabriel Valley, amid a diverse botanical collection of rare plants, shrubs, and mature trees. While The Huntington does not function as a wildlife center, the lush landscape does provide a natural habitat for many birds—including red-shouldered hawks, California quail, Canada geese, and barn owls. Along with three different species of squirrels, it is not uncommon to see raccoons, possums, and, occasionally, coyotes on the property. Always use caution and do not approach wildlife.

Mosquito activity has been very heavy throughout the San Gabriel Valley this summer, including in our Jungle Garden. When outdoors, especially in garden areas, cover up with loose clothing and use insect repellent. More information is available at facebook.com/SGVmosquito.

Geese and their goslings are often spotted on the grounds. For our visitors’ safety (and the safety of our feathered friends) if you see them, please do not disturb them and give them plenty of space. The goslings are indeed adorable, but please resist the temptation to approach them, as their parents can become quite aggressive if they feel threatened.

Koi fish are not native to The Huntington. However, they are very much a part of the Huntington experience, populating our Lily Ponds, Japanese Garden stream, and Chinese Garden lake. Please do not approach or feed them, and keep a respectful distance.

Coyotes are part of the historical landscape of Southern California and have become established in large numbers in urban areas all over the Los Angeles Basin. They were here long before the area was settled and typically remain timid, even if seen out in broad daylight (in urban areas, they are mainly nocturnal). Like any wild animal, they should be viewed with caution. If you see a coyote on the Huntington grounds, please alert one of our security officers. Do not attempt to approach or feed the animal.

No Smoking

The Huntington is a smoke-free environment.

Security Bag Check

For your safety and improved security, please be aware that bags, purses, and backpacks are checked as visitors enter for prohibited items such as drones, photography and sports equipment, gardening tools, weapons, paints, pastels/chalks, large pads and easels, etc.

Food and Picnicking

1919 Cafe, Red Car coffee shop, Freshwater Pavilion, and the Jade Court Cafe are open, serving a delicious selection of fresh entrees and grab-and-go options, snacks, and beverages, including wine and beer. A limited number of tables for picnicking are available in the Garden Court and patio adjacent to the ticketing area. No outside alcoholic beverages. No picnicking is allowed in the gardens.


The Huntington is committed to making its collections, buildings, programs, and services accessible for all visitors. More

Please Be Respectful

We look forward to your visit. However, The Huntington will not tolerate inappropriate behavior, including, but not limited to, yelling, violence, intimidation, threats, harassment, aggression, swearing, damage, abuse, or sexual harassment. Individuals who are aggressive toward staff or other visitors will be expelled from The Huntington and escorted off the property.

Theft Policy

The Huntington is a research and educational institution that depends on the well-being of its collections. Please refrain from touching art objects or removing plant material from the property. Any guest found removing an entire plant will be escorted from the premises and subject to prosecution.
