"Another great museum in California"

This is a museum dedicated to John Steinbeck with interactive exhibits. The museum is relatively small but they have some interesting exhibits. We took about 2 hours to explore the place. The set-up is really fantastic and took us through exhibits that showcase life from the past. It is a very interesting memorial dedicated to the author John Steinbeck.

National Steinbeck Center

The National Steinbeck Center is a museum and memorial dedicated to the author John Steinbeck that is located at One Main Street in Salinas, California, the town where Steinbeck grew up.

The Steinbeck Center Foundation was founded in 1983; the center itself was finished and opened to the public on June 27, 1998. The center houses the largest collection of Steinbeck archives in the United States, with various exhibits on his body of work and philosophy. There is also a wing dedicated to the experiences of agricultural workers in the United States, a topic that Steinbeck was passionate about.

The Steinbeck Center has a focal point for activities to encourage learning about literature, human nature, history, agriculture, and the arts. Many educational programs are provided for the public, students and teachers, a multimedia experience for regional and national audiences.

Steinbeck's House is located near the museum.
