USC Museums comprises the USC Fisher Museum of Art and the USC Pacific Asia Museum. The Fisher Museum is located on the USC Campus and the PAM is located 14 miles south in the beautiful Pasadena, California. Both museums are certified by the Association of American Museums and host special exhibitions, programming and house their own permanent collections.
Located on the USC Campus in the heart of Los Angeles, the Fisher Museum of Art was founded in 1939 by Elizabeth Holmes Fisher as the first museum established in the city of Los Angeles that was opened as an art museum and remains solely dedicated to the exhibition and collection of fine art in its original location.
Pacific Asia Museum
An integral part of the University of Southern California, the USC Pacific Asia Museum creates inspiring encounters with the art, history and culture of Pacific Asia to promote intercultural understanding in the service of elevating our shared sense of humanity.
Beyond the Galleries
The USC Campus is also home to an extensive selection of public art. A casual walk through the corridors of USC will reveal astonishing sculptures around the University campus.
