They should bring back free day once a month! common lay people cannot afford to go there any more. Sad, too much greed !

Many children will never support this place, the Next generation of potential donors is lost. Stupid Development director.

Duh, they should consider the Hispanic and Asians markets. Too many with narrow minds.

The Huntington Library is a snobbish institution with illegal discriminatory practices. They should either provide access to all, or their operations should be taken over by the city, where access can be guaranteed and free of illegal discrimination.

In the meantime, a federal lawsuit should be filed against the Huntington for its illegal and discriminatory practices of the last century.

@Laura,..the Huntington is a NONPROFIT organization you moron. Here, let me help you understand what that means..http://nonprofit.about. com/
You clearly have not been to the Huntington, or you would have seen the multi-million dollar Chinese garden; the result of a proud and generous local Asian community.
Yours is the narrow mind.

Please provide details of the "illegal discriminatory practices" that you so easily accuse the Huntington of?? Is it that the Huntington requires people to register for a ticket in advance on free day?
You clearly have never managed anything because this is nothing more than planning.
Advanced registration for a free event allows the institution to keep a handle on how much upkeep (read $$$ and headcount) will be required after all the patrons leave.
The only Federal Lawsuit that should be filed should be filed against the FAT bias that you have against things you know nothing about.
You should keep to to the things you do know, like picking fleas off your cat.

Hey hey hey. You need to read more carefully instead of just jumping to conclusions and posting HATEFUL comments!

The Huntington should be sued or taken over by the city because it charges too much money for admission and has taken away the free entrance day. This results in discrimination because the Huntington is now only accessible to people who have money. People of color without money cannot afford the admission, so they are denied access. This is illegal discrimination.

The Huntington may be non-profit but it is still elitist with its policy of charging outrageous admission that most people cannot afford.

The above is a sick and sad comment. I worked at The Huntington and my boss was Latino. The person directly under him was Middle Eastern. My co-workers were very diversified. The overwhelming majority of the staff of around 70 in my dept., were what are considered non White.
It is pretty easy to spot people who have no clue .

You're lying. You never worked there. I worked there as a custodian and minorities were hired only to do clean up. All the other people who work there are white.

I remember going there as a child and thinking how unjust it was for one man to own all that when the people who built the railroads were so poor. My comfort was that now that he was dead, all the working people could come and visit.
I went there today and was outraged by the entrance fee. It IS discriminatory. It makes the Huntington Library inaccessible to the poor working people.
