‘Tis the season for entertaining and for enjoying cherished family recipes and traditional dishes. At Pasadena Museum of History, we’re doing exactly that.

Join PMH Volunteer and gourmet home cook Amy Breyer as she recreates handwritten recipes from Eva Scott Fenyes’ kitchen. This live virtual program features a hands-on demonstration of three vintage treats, each of which would be a great addition to any holiday feast or party. Amy will also share practical tips, strategies, and considerations when bringing these recipes into the 21st century.

Tickets: General $20; PMH Members FREE. Advance reservations required.

A variety of lectures and events on Pasadena history, art, and culture promote the Museum’s goal to provide life-long learning in a non-classroom setting. These events are offered in addition to regular tours of the Fenyes Mansion and exhibitions.

This wide-ranging, multi-year initiative encourages residents and visitors alike to discover the region’s history, culture, and natural beauty through varied in-person and virtual offerings throughout the year.

Each year, Pasadena Museum of History honors individuals and/or businesses as Contemporary History Makers for their contributions to our cultural community.

Changing 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. We have two galleries and often host two changing exhibitions at the same time.
