The National Steinbeck Center is a wonderful look into the life of the amazing author John Steinbeck. There are 3 rooms where you can experience the literature and history, agriculture and art of John Steinbeck’s hometown. There are a number of hands-on exhibits which thoroughly entertained the little ones and seven themed theaters showcasing a variety of readings and movies.
I love John Steinbeck novels – we have a few gathering dust on our bookshelves. One in particular that I remember reading in school called Of Mice and Men. Now that we have visited the Steinbeck Center I will be having Jay read it this year. I picked up another Steinbeck book to add to our collection today called Cannery Row. I thought that very fitting seeing as we are living in that area now.
