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.
Go now while it's still in good condition!
