Last week, I visited Rosicrucian Park in the Rose Garden area of San Jose with friends to walk the grounds and take photos of the Egyptian-style buildings and doors. The museums were closed, and very few people were in the gardens making for a relaxed and peaceful experience. It’s been over five years since I last visited the park, and not much has changed. Here are a few photos from my visit.

About Rosicrucian Park:

From Wikipedia: The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum (REM) is devoted to ancient Egypt, located at Rosicrucian Park in the Rose Garden neighborhood of San Jose, California, United States.
It was founded by the Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis (AMORC). The Rosicrucian Order continues to support and expand the museum and its educational and scientific activities. The museum holds the largest collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities in the Western United States, and is located next to the Rosicrucian headquarters.

What an interesting looking place, lovely doors and architecture.
It is a lovely place to visit. As it’s winter, the gardens were sparse, but still nice to walk through.
Wow, fascinating! I love the colours and patterns.
It’s a colorful place!
Looks like such an interesting place. Thanks for the tour. 😊
It’s a favorite park and museum of mine too! Great doors, and scenes of it, Donna!
Thank you, Deborah. I always enjoy visiting the park. It’s been awhile since I’ve been in the museum. Next time. 🙂
Someday I’ll have tell the story about the first time I took #1 Grandson there when he was into Mummies.
I’m sure it’s a fun story that I’d love to hear.
This looks like a place I could get lost in for a good long time. I love your photos. I love seeing the colors and the lines and shadows.
Thank you, Dan. Lots to see there, especially when the museums are open.
