Recommended to visit before you hit the wineries, as there is a lot of interesting information, beautiful personal photographs and stories to learn about Robert Louis Stevenson (RLS). The beauty and uniqueness of the collection is in the fact that it takes the term "bibliophile" to a whole new level. Norman H. Strouse, collector and founder of the museum bequeathed many first editions and personal belongings of RLS. From his desk, to his bookshelves, to a mirror which hung in his home, this beautiful collection will connect you to one of the world's most fascinating and well-traveled authors in history. A word of caution: Do not speak to the curators unless you know nothing about RLS! They don't take well to tourists who point out that the Scotsman was only in California for less than a year, and will bite your head off for it. The funny thing is, they won't berate children for touching, leaning on, or otherwise leaving their mark on the exhibitions. Go now while it's still in good condition!
