Permanent Exhibition Halls

John Steinbeck Exhibition Hall

The John Steinbeck Exhibition Hall brings the world of the writer to life through six themed galleries of artifacts, photographs, film clips and interactive exhibits.

As you walk through the hall, you will take a journey into Steinbeck’s life and discover how his experiences and values help shape some of his greatest works such as The Grapes of Wrath, East of Eden and The Red Pony. The Exhibition Hall delves deeply into Steinbeck’s life and literature, with sections devoted to each of his major works and most of the rarely read Steinbeck titles.
