“A fascinating treasure”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

This museum is worth a visit not only for the chance to see Grace Hudson's marvelous paintings of local Native American life, but also for the exhibits setting out her fascinating family, the gorgeous Pomo baskets and other artifacts, and the chance to see her home, the Sun House, in its original condition.

“Outstanding small museum”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The Grace Hudson Museum has some really fine local Native American crafts, mostly baskets of the Pomo people. The basis of the collection, however, are the paintings by Grace Hudson (The Painter Lady, as she was known among the local tribes) which depict the Pomo people as they lived in her time. The Sunhouse, (Hudson's home) when it is open for tours is also very interesting, especially at Christmas when the staff decorates it for the holidays.

“A Little Gem”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

This is a wonderful museum. Ms. Hudson had such an artist eye and, what seems to be, a great relationship with the Native Americans. Her work is just amazing. But then there are the Native American baskets to see and the guest artist. The Sun House wasn't open when we were there, so I cannot say anything about that, but I will return to see it and revisit the museum when the venue changes

“Great place to visit”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Couple of hours and you get to see the history of Grace and how she lived independently, very good story, along with her art work, apart from some contemporary art work from other artists.

“Ukiah Nugget”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

This is a very worthwhile "local" museum to visit for a few hours. It gives a very special insight to the family and the interests of the artist (Grace Hudson) who took such a significant interest in the local Pomo peoples and their arts/crafts who lives were be transformed so dramatically at the end of the 19th century. There was also an exhibition of another early California artist that was well displayed and informative. A very pleasant hidden gem to visit.
