A little history

I enjoyed learning the history of the area. We viewed the free area after riding up to the museum on our bikes

The exhibit showed the best of various collectors. Each work of art was a wonderful gem. I particularly was impressed with the Cara Walker and Tony Fitzpatrick.

This small museum is full of treasures and offers lots of interesting activities, but there's nothing quite like the 1984 mural of vintners (thankfully identified in an adjacent bronze plaque) that is a veritable history of Napa Valley. Andre Tchelistcheff, Warren Winiarski, Brother Timothy, Louis and Carolyn Martini, Janet Trefethen, Jack and Jamie Davies, Robert and Margrit Mondavi, it's a... More

It is a little bit like the vineyards in Southern Styria, Austria but with the extra little touch of the Pacific coast not too far away > very inspiring sleep places and Californian food at high level.

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

The current show at Napa Valley Museum is 'A Date with the Devil' and it is as interesting as it sounds. Nineteen local artists have created a two-dimensional piece on the music composition, 'The Soldier's Tale' by Igor Stravinsky. A tale about making choices in life (and selling or not selling your soul to the devil) the interpretations of the... More

The Napa Valley Museum is a small, charming regional museum. I was particularly impressed with its emphasis on local artists and their work. The rotating collection is impressive. 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.
