Fenyes Mansion Review

With its elegant dark-wood paneling and floors, curved staircases, and a theatrical stage in the parlor, it's easy to envision how this 1905 mansion along Pasadena's Millionaire's Row once served as gathering place for the city's elite (it also housed the Finnish Consulate until 1965). Most rooms on the ground and second floors are still fitted with original furniture; you can peek into these roped-off spaces, now home to mannequins dressed in period clothing, to get a sense of what life was like a century ago. You can visit the mansion (on your own or on a 90-minute tour), the adjacent Finnish Folk Art Museum, and the Historical Center Gallery, which has rotating exhibits dedicated to the art and culture of Pasadena.
