“Where Literature Jumps off the Page!”
The National Steinbeck Center is located in John Steinbeck’s hometown of Salinas, Calif., a scenic 17-mile drive from Monterey in the heart of Steinbeck Country. The Center offers three distinct visitor experiences in literature and history, agriculture and art, as well special events and educational programs. In the John Steinbeck Exhibition Hall, literature jumps off the printed page and into your imagination. Discover Steinbeck’s world through interactive, multi-sensory exhibits for all ages, rare artifacts and seven themed theaters showcasing East of Eden, Cannery Row, Of Mice and Men, The Grapes of Wrath and much more. Explore the stories of the Salinas Valley “from field to fork” in the Rabobank Agriculture Museum. Salinas has long been known as “the Salad Bowl of the World”, and this hands-on permanent exhibit celebrates the history, people and technology of the agricultural industry.
No visit would be complete for a John Steinbeck fan without a trip to Salinas — the setting for East of Eden and his home before moving to Pacific Grove. I suggest taking a walk through the National Steinbeck Center at the end of Main Street for an interactive dive into his plethora of great novels.
