The programming is of the highest level, whether it's a reading, a lecture or a theatrical production. Give yourself ample time to get there, then sit back and enjoy a consummate cultural experience.

Had a great time coming here to see the Jim Henson Exhibit in June 2018. There was so many interesting things to read and so many cool puppets to see. I enjoyed coming here while in California.
