Staycation: South Pasadena Museum

A Museum? In tiny South Pasadena?! Yes, and what a treat it is! The South Pasadena Historical Museum is in this cool red building right by the Mission Goldline station on Meridian.

Curated by the South Pasadena Preservation Foundation, there are multiple display cases of artifacts, including a flag flown at Abraham Lincoln's inauguration (yes, in this little museum!!), along with a pipe organ console and a 3-seated wooden ostrich from a 1910 carousel-type ride. Upstairs there are more relics in cases, articles of clothing, and walls filled with historic pictures.

The "white sheet" on the backside of the building is where movies are shown on select Saturday nights in the summer. Folks sit on the lawn and watch the family screenings. I'm so there for Edward Scissorhands on July 25th!
