Among the many curated exhibits featured are S.F.B. Morse and the Hotel Del Monte. Important early California artists such as Armin Hansen, William Ritschel, Jules Tavernier, E. Charlton Fortune, Francis McComas, Jo Mora and M. DeNeale Morgan. Some of the many other exhibits to be enjoyed are displays of legendary writers John Steinbeck, Robert Louis Stevenson, Gertrude Stein and Henry Miller.
Come by for a visit, there’s much more to be discovered…
We are located at the corner of Forest Avenue and Laurel Avenue, directly across the street from the Pacific Grove City Hall.
Almost all of the 4,000 square foot building is exclusively devoted to preserving the past by informing the present, thus providing insights for the future. The Museum-Gallery experience is arranged to accommodate individual walk-in visitors as well as docent tours, classes, speakers, and many larger events in a setting meant to tangibly express the rich depth of our local heritage.
