Stellar Museum in a Small space
Apr 2019
This museum is a real gem. it has great visiting exhibits and a comprehensive Napa Valley History section.
WE were lucky to be there for the Picasso Prints exhibit. This included masterworks by Picasso and many other artist of his generation, We were blown away that a small area museum had such an amazing exhibit.
We just missed the Julia Child Photo exhibit, but were able to see it later at Copia in Napa.
We highly recommend this museum.

We went by when they had the aDisney train exhibit. My husband had a home in Napa for decades and did not know there was a museum here. It is a good size and they have interesting exhibits. Fun place to drop by!

What a Great Find!
Jul 2019 • Couples
The Napa Valley Museum is located in Yountville. The Picasso printmaking exhibit was astoundingly good and included Miro, Motherwell, etc. It not only presented the works, but also gave information about how the different printmaking processes were accomplished. The work was excellent, as was the presentation. This exhibit would have stood up well against any similar exhibition in a major museum. Whenever I am in the Napa area, I will check to see what is on display at this little gem of a museum.

Small and Unimpressive
May 2019 • Couples
If you have nothing else to do in Napa Valley, which I cannot image, you might want to stroll through this small museum that does charge and offers very little. Not easy to walk from downtown Yountville, it is across a major highway and on the grounds of a veteran's home. No matter when you visit you are likely to find yourself alone with the gatekeeper.

Wonderful Small Museum
Sep 2018 • Friends
This museum offers a combination of permanent and changing exhibits. We went to get a better understanding of the history of Napa Valley and their permanent exhibit did a nice job of giving the overview. We also noted that they have step stools to accommodate small children - a nice touch.

The changing exhibits were of even more interest to us. The top floor had a nicely curated and displayed exhibition of the work of two California artists - different in style but very complementary. Another exhibit celebrated the 50-year anniversary of the Agricultural Preservation Act that was initiated by citizens of the Valley. This has allowed Napa to maintain its picturesque landscape and continues to be under pressure today. How grateful we, as tourists, are for the foresight of these visionaries!

Julia Child photo expo very good
Apr 2018 • Couples
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.

Charming museum that surprises with wonderful Paul and Julia Child photo exhibit.d
Nov 2017 • Couples
When we were at this museum during the Napa Valley Film Festival 2017 there was a lovely exhibit of art and photos by Paul Child about his life with Julia. We have been to the museum previously and always enjoy viewing the featured exhibits, and the regular ones about the history of Napa Valley.

Small but interesting
Jul 2017
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.

Wonderful place where you never know what you'll see or discover
May 2017 • Solo
This is a relatively new and relatively small museum that has a huge variety of different kinds of exhibitions that are appropriate to both adults and children. Some of them are highly interactive, which I alway think is a great approach for a museum but all too rare.

Nice Place not special
Apr 2017 • Family
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.
