Salinas Things to Do: 20 reviews and 65 photos

Fans of author John Steinbeck are in for a real treat. Right in the heart of Steinbeck country, one can learn all about the author's childhood, family, and community. The vignettes throughout the museum provide background on Steinbeck's most popular books, including snippets of films that were based on his books. They have a very nice gift shop and a museum featuring various artists and/or exhibitions.
