Drawing from the works of John Steinbeck, The National Steinbeck Center is dedicated to Steinbeck’s creative legacy: to participate, to inspire, to educate, and to understand one another.
Please note that the National Steinbeck Center is within a building owned by California State Monterey Bay (CSUMB). As such, we are required to follow the safety regulations dictated by the CSUMB President and risk management department.
They have declared that masks must be worn inside the building until further notice.
We understand that this is contrary to both Federal and State mandates so we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. This policy is not due our National Steinbeck Center staff, so we ask that you understand our position.
We ask that you follow the request to wear masks inside.
Special thanks to our sponsors for their generous support
