Step inside the historic 1906 Fényes Mansion to enjoy an exclusive, in-depth tour of this Pasadena landmark and Beaux Arts-style architectural treasure that immerses you in the world of Museum benefactors Eva Scott Fényes (1849-1930), her husband Dr. Adalbert Fényes, and Eva’s descendants.

Eva’s elegant home, designed by architect Robert Farquhar with a later (1911) addition by Sylvanus Marston, is largely unchanged from when she was in residence, featuring her original décor, antique furnishings, and art collection. Discover how the Mansion reflects the lifestyle and culture of a woman raised in the Victorian era who successfully juxtaposed her cherished past, embraced the present, and influenced the future as an accomplished artist, patron of the arts, and astute businesswoman. Your expert tour guide will provide intimate details of the family’s life; an in-depth exploration of the art, architecture, and antiques as you move from room to room; and connect the Fényes family legacy with the history of early 20th century Pasadena.
