This weekend featured the opening of the new Steven S. Koblik Education and Visitor Center at the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens.

We’ve been tracking it’s progress for a while, two years in fact. So opening is welcome, after years of going to the Huntington and having to do everything in Trailers and temporary Metal buildings.

 

Remember, we started here with the original Visitor’s center from way back:

Huntington V27-055

 

That turned (temporarily) into this:

Huntington Library 3

 

And now we’re here, with a brand new campus, including Orientation Gallery, and well...just look!
