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.

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.
