Pasadena Museum of History

470 W. Walnut Street, Pasadena

Pasadena Museum of History is on a two-acre estate, originally the home of Museum benefactors Eva Scott Fenyes and her husband, Dr. Adalbert Fenyes. Today, the campus includes the History Center, the Finnish Folk Art Museum, and the landmark 1906 Beaux Arts Fenyes Mansion. The History Center is home to our exhibition galleries, Research Library, and Archives and Museum Store.

Please note: The Fenyes Mansion will NOT BE OPEN for MOTA Day 2023.

The current exhibition, Community Stitches: Quilt Designs & Stories features more than 60 quilts representing over 180 years of quilt-making in America. Curated by Arlene Stevens and Leah Zieber of the California Heritage Quilt Project, highlights include treasures from the Museum’s extensive textile collection along with select pieces on loan. Join us to discover hidden stories in these stitches of the past as we explore the complex history of quilts made by and for the Pasadena community.
