Sight, the workhorse of the five senses, puts in too many hours keeping man from falling into manholes. Give the most overworked sense a vacation with today's Groupon: two entry options to the Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena. Unlike the number of crows in the wild, there are only four U.S. institutions dedicated to the arts and culture of Asia and the Pacific Islands—Pacific Asia Museum is one of them. Choose one of two ways to experience the museum:

  • $4 for a one-day admission (a $9 value)
  • $25 for a Bamboo-level membership (a $55 value); Groupon holders may upgrade membership and pay the difference.

In America's melting pot of delicious cultures, Asians and Pacific Islanders would most likely be the bay leaf, the crucial ingredient that gives the recipe its robust flavor. Pacific Asia Museum, which first opened its doors in 1971, is dedicated to the multi-layered cultures of Asia and the Pacific Islands. Its collection contains more than 15,000 pieces of historical art dating back more than 4,000 years. Learn about vital Asian history through current exhibits such as 'Forget Sorrow': Illustrations by Belle Yang, which presents images by the subject of the CINE-award-winning film My Name Is Belle, documenting an immigrant's experience as viewed through the eyes of a child. Permanent collections include more than 800 Japanese, Chinese, and Pacific Island graphic-art prints motivated by culture, politics, religion, and scenes from Ghost Busters.

The building that houses the museum is itself a historical institution, inspired by Chinese Imperial Palaces. The beauteous setting of The Grace Nicholson Building and the serene courtyard transport visitors across the Pacific faster than one of those portal holes ever could. Regardless of your cultural heritage, Pacific Asia Museum is filled with eclectic collections of brain boosters and aesthetically pleasing art to enjoy.

Valid for new members and to renew membership; memberships must be activated by December 31, 2010.

Reviews

Yelpers give Pacific Asia Museum a 4.5-star average, and six Judy's Book users give it a four-star average:

  • The Pacific Asia Museum houses a great collection of Asian artifacts ranging from ancient pottery to modern Chinese art...I found the displays on Chinese ceramics to be particularly interesting. The courtyard in the center of the building is a beautiful quiet place to reflect when you've finished touring the various gallery spaces. – jaepu, Judy's Book
  • Cool little museum to learn about Asian culture. – T W., Yelp

A great little place!

I went there for special event, which was excellent! Very well executed. However, the museum itself and exhibits was rather small.
