A variety of lectures and seminars on history, art, and culture promote the Museum’s goal to provide life-long learning in a non-classroom setting. PMH offers award-winning educational programs for adults and children of all ages.

Free Days include Happy Birthday Pasadena (June), which celebrates Pasadena’s history and diverse community with fun for all ages. PMH also provides free admission and entertaining public programming for community collaborations such as Museums of the Arroyo (MOTA) Day (May) and ArtNight Pasadena (March and October).  In addition, one Family Free Day is held in conjunction with each exhibition.

These events are offered in addition to regular tours of the Fenyes Mansion and exhibitions. Designed to entertain as well as educate, the changing exhibitions in the Kathryne Beynon Foundation Exhibition Hall in the History Center address Pasadena’s diverse and multi-faceted community history.
