I love to go to small local museums around the country. They really give the flavor of an area. Grace Hudson is a destination for all my out of town visitors. It has some terrific historical exhibits and information along with some local art displays. The gift shop is a treasure of items for getting just the right small gifts... More

One of my favorite museums in the west because of its emphasis on Indian art. The basketry collection will make you swoon. And Grace Hudson's own paintings of Indian babies and children (and their dogs) are so realistic, the kids almost come alive. I appreciate the museum's dedication to showcasing contemporary Indian artists too.

A community owned museum featuring a permanent collection of Grace Hudson works. This gem is worth a visit to learn more about the history of the native people and to begin to understand the significance of art in this area. Plan a couple of hours as you are transported back to a time when early settlers interacted with the native... More

Wonderful addition to the town - celebrating Grace Hudson's own art plus wonderful traveling shows. It being on the grounds of her original home makes it extra special. The gardens are going through extensive renovationbs so should be even more special by 2017.

For 20 years I've driven by the sign for this museum and gallery and always meant to go. Finally did and it was well worth the stop. Very up to date museum with interesting commentary and gorgeous native made baskets. We learned alot. The adjoining arts and crafts house is also a lovely example of the style. I'll be back!

When we arrived in Ukiah, we sought out the Chamber of Commerce for information on what to do in town. The fellow manning the desk was really helpful! He suggested this museums and historic house, so we navigated our way on foot - after a few wrong moves, found it amid a bunch of construction (they are building a new... More

Using Hudson's art and the basketry of the Pomo people, the museum offers an informative and thoughtful insight into another time and culture. The temporary quilt exhibit was also outstanding.

I am a member so take that into account. This is a lovely small museum with some very interesting local native american artifacts, and paintings of the local native Americans. They have very interesting shows for local artists as well as regional artists.
