“Great for children. Lots of California history .”
Review of Sharpsteen Museum

Sharpsteen Museum
Ranked #14 of 67 things to do in Calistoga
Certificate of Excellence

Reviewed 8 October 2011

This well done museum was designed by a Disney animator and the murals and dioramas show his artistic talent. There is so much California history that ties in to Calistoga's.. the wagon train pioneers, the gold rush, the railroads, the Chinese, etc. There's a real stage coach and a working model train. It's wonderful for children and there are pull out platforms for smaller children to see the big diorama. A real find.

This small museum which only asks for a donation, is worth a visit. There is a lot of very good information, along with very interesting exhibits. On Saturdays beginning in May there is a great Farmer's Market in the parking lot. Certianly worth a visit.

We went to the Sharpsteen after seeing the review above - and loved it! Very quaint and gives you a step by step history of Calistoga (which is surprisingly interesting!). Highly recommend it. People working there were very nice as well.

We stumbled upon this little museum by accident but spent an hour wandering round it.

The museum features the history of Calistoga through some fantastic murals. They really have got to be seen to be believed.

The staff are very helpful and provide a basic introduction to the area and then leave you to wander around.

I would highly recommend visiting this museum.
