Spend the winter in Paris without leaving the Napa Valley! The Napa Valley Museum Yountville is available to rent for celebrations and corporate events this season. Host your holiday party in a gallery setting surrounded by the world premiere exhibition of rare photographs of Julia Child in Paris. Our exhibit: France is a Feast: The Photographic Journey of Paul & Julia Child, arrives on November 11, just in time for the holiday season, and runs through Valentine’s Day to February 18. The museum is a perfect venue for meetings, special occasions, weddings, and receptions. Our parking lot and large Meadow are available for rental too. Reserve the Museum at www.napavalleymuseum.org.
Just across the St. Helena Highway from the culinary mecca of Yountville, you'll find this gem of a museum on the grounds of the California Veteran's Home. Napa Valley Museum offers a welcome break from whirlwind wine-tasting, and visiting its permanent collection of art and artifacts is an experience that truly brings the Valley into focus.
From the 1950s Napa City Limits sign (Population, then: 13, 155. Now: 77, 000+.), to paintings and photos of the pioneers of wine, the museum's collection chronicles the history of the region, its people and geology, along with the wine industry that put Napa Valley on the map.
And, as if that weren't reason enough to visit, the Museum's Main Gallery hosts an ever-changing array of exhibitions featuring regional, national and local artists as well as treasures from private collections. Collaborations with the 1200-seat Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater next door bring the visual and performing arts together in innovative ways, while discovery days and craft workshops welcome families to the museum for hands-on fun.
Explore the galleries and relax by the fountain in the shady courtyard, or plan your visit for the third Saturday of the month, when you can take a guided tour at 11 a.m.

Insider Tip: The free Yountville Trolley runs from downtown Yountville to the Museum and back every half hour, so you can park the car and spend the day exploring.
Did You Know? The trees lining California Drive up to the museum came from the 1939 World's Fair on Treasure Island.
