Way back in 1997 I visited the temporary space for the growing number of Steinbeck items that were being collected for the future center. To show up 17 years later to see the National Steinbeck Center was truly an amazing experience. These people have done an excellent job. Reading reviews prior to visiting I was somewhat concerned that The Grapes of Wrath would be left out. However, I found that ample space was given to the novel and that the holistic approach of the museum carries the themes from all of John's works throughout the displays. I am including photos which show some of the dedicated space for Grapes. Overall, I was very impressed. Visiting the museum was the most rewarding experience I had in my vacation to the Monterey/ Carmel area. It's a real gem.
