Commemorative Tiles

In July 2016, PMH was thrilled to announce the donation of the Ernest A. Batchelder Tile Collection and Archives by architectural historian and Trustee Emeritus, Robert Winter, PhD. To celebrate this gift, PMH launched a Commemorative Tile Campaign to create a new donor recognition site located on the front steps of the Museum’s History Center. Inspired by the Arts & Crafts tradition, these tiles provide you with the opportunity to acknowledge someone in your life, mark a significant occasion, or display your love of Pasadena and its history. Your sponsorship will also convey your support of the Museum’s mission to preserve and share the rich history of our community. The next tile installation is scheduled for Fall 2022.

NOW ON VIEW: Community Stitches: Quilt Designs & Stories
HOURS: Exhibition Galleries & Museum Store Wed-Sun 12-5 | Research Library Fri-Sun 1-4

Tiles are available in multiple prices and sizes, ranging from $250 for a 3" x 6" tile to $2,500 for a 9" x 12" tile.

Tiles are installed periodically. To inquire about the next tile installation, please email
