You might want 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
bequethed 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-travelled authors in history.
A word of caution:
Do not speak to the curators unless you know nothing about RLS! While they might not
take well to tourists who point out that the Scotsman was only in
California for less than a year, they won't berate children for touching, leaning on, or
otherwise leaving their mark on the exhibitions.
