Goodman Library’s Summer Hours:
“Land and People of Napa Valley,” the Museum’s permanent exhibition, “pops up” in downtown Napa for the first time. The Museum’s History Gallery is drawn from the 15,000 items in the Museum’s permanent collection of art and artifacts evidencing the Valley’s history, people and geography, and includes both permanent and rotating displays, along with special exhibitions and programs. Visitors learn how Napa Valley’s unique geology made this valley’s agricultural and viticulture industries flourish.
This pop-up exhibition includes many of the Museum’s most popular Permanent History Cases, including both objects and text, covering topics including Geology: the Creation of the Valley, The Land, History of Valley Transportation, Ranching & Farming, Mining, Pioneer Days, the Rancho Days, Hot Springs Resorts, Chinese of Napa Valley, the Jews of the Valley, Prohibition, and The Agricultural Preserve. The exhibit is Free to the public during Goodman Library’s open hours.
