The place is different. The recology exhibit has nothing to do with Napa county. The history exhibits are interesting and worthwhile. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The visit was worth 3.50 admission.

The Recology exhibition was very interesting. The main idea for the art originates from the local garbage dumps. There was a dress made out of styrofoam and another made from a black trash bag. An unique umbrella with moving parts from a meat grinder. The traditional museum was very small and its ideas were from the grapes grown in the... More

We stopped in to see what was inside out of curiosity. We were pleasantly surprised to see that it had quite alot of information about Napa Valley in it. Give it a try

I took my 26-yr old daughter with me to see this place. We were shocked (after a $12 each admission) to see just a house-sized room of "ehh" pictures. One looked like just a photo of a bag of peaches?? When we saw grocery bags on the floor posing as "ART" we almost asked for our 12$ back! But slowly,... More

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
