The Norton Simon Museum is an art museum in Pasadena, California. Its permanent collection, with more than 11,000 objects, is highly regarded internationally. The museum does not own the works it displays; instead, most of the art is on long-term loan from The Norton Simon Foundation and the Norton Simon Art Foundation, which each own different groups of artworks. No more than 800 or 900 of those pieces are on display at any one time.The museum also mounts temporary exhibitions that focus on a particular artist, an art movement or artistic period, or art that was created in a specific region or country.
