If you enjoy works by John Steinbeck, this is a great place to see. Even if you are not a Steinbeck fan, you might really enjoy this. The docents are very knowledgeable, and, like Joe B, had known Steinbeck personally. I have been there a few times, and don't tire of seeing the actual truck Steinbeck used in his "Travels with Charlie". Too, there is a gallery around the corner featuring the work (as I write) of Joe Bragdon, a beloved local photographer who attempted to woo a woman after having worked in the cannery, stinking of fish guts no matter how many times he showered. Doris, who eventually married him, says he was a great guy when the wind was blowing right.
I have visited the center alone, with my partner, and with relatives and strangers. All really enjoyed it.
