National Steinbeck Center, A Literary Gem

Large arrow left

An offbeat destination for classic American literature buffs. A quaint Main Street in Salinas is a much better intellectual destination than the run down Cannery Row in Monterey. A fabulous museum and bookstore with many short films about the author throughout. Visiting high quality exhibits from places like The Smithsonian share the space. Good films and exhibitions on the areas agriculture helps Californians understand better where much their produce comes from during the current local food craze.
