I first visited the Steinbeck Museum when I was in the sixth grade and it was brand new. It was definitely interesting because I had read a few of his books and stories about his life. But if you are not a Steinbeck fan then definitely do not visit this museum. It is filled with all this books, places he has traveled, pictures, things he used to own, and more! It is fun the first time but if you go more then once it can kind of get old.
