The Huntington has enormous grounds with extensive walks around the gardens. Beware the afternoon heat in August can be extreme. There are long walks between buildings with the various exhibits. We focused on the library. The small book section has such things as a Gutenberg...More

It was a great experience. We are in a group of 8 people, and everyone of us had a good time. I particularly liked the Japanese garden and manuscript collection.

Not to sit on the grass, but there are plenty of tables for you to sit at in multiple gardens. I did see some people sitting down but no real picnic baskets.
