Napa Museum is nice to visit. It has some exhibits on history; some are rotational exhibits, and they offer special events. I have visited and enjoyed my time there; it took a little less than an hour. In terms of so many wonderful things to see in Napa Valley, in my humble opinion, it is not a highlight. Its more...

So, my partner and I were driving to Yountville for the Chandon winery. We see signs saying "Napa Valley Museum" and thought why don't we do that quickly first. We got there. One car was in the car park, we thought nothing of it as it was early in the morning. Once we got in we paid $10 in total.... More

It is not surprising that it is high quality and well done. It is in Napa Valley, after all. The staff members are warm and charming. I learned some interesting facts about... More

No one in our party liked the first floor artwork. The tribute to Mare Island downstairs was nice but a bit eery, almost like when you actually drive out there. The whole experience plus the elevator ride and restroom stop took 20 minutes. Most of us were expecting to see something about wineries, wine, and the terrior. No harm done.... More

We played tourist this weekend because our friend from Southern California was visiting us. Always wanted to see the exhibits and although small, very interesting and informative. Well done.
