Things to do other than wine tasting

We've enjoyed wine tastings in Napa and have a day left. Can anyone suggest something do involving the arts or possibly nature. The giant redwoods are a possibility but we think the trip would take a little too long ie a four hour round trip. Thanks everyone.

Visit the di Rosa Preserve:

Or Hess Collection:

In SF, a very special Picasso exhibit, in its final days:

How's that?

The museum in Yountville at the Veterans Home has some interesting pieces right now, one exhibit is masks made by our soldiers coming home. The community center in Yountville also has some art work and it's free.

Downtown Napa, Yountville, St. Helena and Calistoga have quite a few art galleries.

There are giant redwoods in Marin County (between Napa and San Francisco, near the coast), located in Muir Woods National Monument, west of Mill Valley:

No need to drive all the way up the California Coast for redwoods, this park is very impressive and a very special place.

To combine nature and art, same day, you could visit the charming, artsy/nautical hillside community of Sausalito, which is adjacent to Mill Valley, having lots of galleries and killer views of San Francisco:

This suggestion for Muir Woods + Sausalito is especially convenient if your travel plans include both San Francisco and Napa Valley, as they are directly on the route between the two.
