I've been to Calistoga dozens of times and never came here. Now that I know about it I will bring the kids. Wonderful displays.

Incredible collection of original Disney work and great history of the area. The volunteer docents are truly helpful and the price of the museum makes it all that much more special. (It is free.) Check it out if you are in town. we visit the area every year but didn't know about it before this time. We will be back for sure to learn more about the fascinating history of this historic location.
Great sense of history and unique, surprising facts you'd never learn elsewhere
