Museum from Home

Welcome to the Norton Simon Museum from Home. Here, we have assembled many of our online resources, from collection videos, to art-making activities, to educational resources and more, so that you can continue to experience the Museum while we are temporarily closed.

We have also created several new features, such as: Meditative Moments, a collection of short mindfulness exercises designed to encourage thoughtful contemplation of the Museum’s remarkable artworks; Impressions, featuring essays on the care and interpretation of the collection; and Dispatches from the Conservation Studio, highlighting the varied projects led by the Museum’s conservator.

We are continually adding to our Museum from Home, so check back here regularly, or stay in touch:
