National Steinbeck Center

What can a single human build with just his words? In the case of John Steinbeck, the answer to that question is an entire museum. Located in the Nobel-Prize-winning author's hometown of Salinas, California, the National Steinbeck Center immortalizes the author's writing with three-dimensional exhibits that show how Steinbeck championed the human spirit.

  • Size: interactive exhibit spaces, rotating galleries, and seven exhibits based on the author's famous and lesser-known works
  • Eye Catcher: Steinbeck's real camper from his travelogue Travels with Charley: In Search of America
  • Don't Miss: personal belongings from the Steinbeck family
  • Crown Jewels: journals and artifacts that inspired East of Eden, The Grapes of Wrath and Of Mice and Men
  • Special Programs: panel discussions with filmmakers and other artists; a weekly book club; a sudden desire to re-write your middle school English paper

What made the trip even better was that I read two of Steinbeck's books just before coming to the museum. This really made the displays more meaningful. Lovely museum!
