Interesting artifacts from the local area. Grace Hudson was a painter of Native Americans and Mendocino County.

This museum is worth a visit not only for the chance to see Grace Hudson's marvelous paintings of local Native American life, but also for the exhibits setting out her fascinating family, the gorgeous Pomo baskets and other artifacts, and the chance to see her home, the Sun House, in its original condition.

The basis of the collection, however, are the paintings by Grace Hudson (The Painter Lady, as she was known among the local tribes) which depict the Pomo people as they lived in her time. The Sunhouse, (Hudson's home) when it is open... More

This is a wonderful museum. Ms. Hudson had such an artist eye and, what seems to be, a great relationship with the Native Americans. Her work is just amazing. But then there are the Native American baskets to see and the guest artist. The Sun House wasn't open when we were there, so I cannot say anything about that, but... More

Couple of hours and you get to see the history of Grace and how she lived independently, very good story, along with her art work, apart from some contemporary art work from other artists.

This is a very worthwhile "local" museum to visit for a few hours. It gives a very special insight to the family and the interests of the artist (Grace Hudson) who took such a significant interest in the local Pomo peoples and their arts/crafts who lives were be transformed so dramatically at the end of the 19th century. There was... More

Excellent restoration of American woman emeshed in the Native American culture. This is the real deal. Many artifacts and MANY art works. She's simply amazing. Gives one a real local flavor as well. Ms Hudson was so very prolific!!!

I'm no artist or critic regarding art... I know what I don't like - and I just don't get a colors splashed across the canvas as a display of talent. THIS art however is what *I* call art. Grace's art is simply beautiful - mostly depicting native american indians in everyday life. There is some other art there as well,... More
