Her husband was an excellent photographer and your able to see their life in Paris during the 1950’s. Head up the hill from Yountville next to the Veterans Home and spend a couple bucks. Parking is easy too.

This was a small museum (2 rooms) but provided a good break from the vineyards and nice local history. The other room was a sound exhibit and a wonderful place if you brought the kids.

You have to like this place for its location, exhibits and children welcome. Plenty of space for kids to make art and everyone to look over exhibit art. Some history included.

The place is different. The recology exhibit has nothing to do with Napa county. The history exhibits are interesting and worthwhile. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The visit was worth 3.50 admission.

The Recology exhibition was very interesting. The main idea for the art originates from the local garbage dumps. There was a dress made out of styrofoam and another made from a black trash bag. An unique umbrella with moving parts from a meat grinder. The...More
