Additionally displayed were a collection of beautiful antique evening bags and an early days cottage complete with bedroom, dining room,... 更多

I am one. The Sharpsteen presents a brief overview of the development of Calistoga by the white man - the notable attraction is the diorama of the original Indian Springs resort. It is quite small; during our visit, much of the space was taken up by a button exhibit. $3 admission.
Yog, thank you for visiting the Sharpsteen Museum. 更多
The people here are friendly and knowledgeable and clearly love their community and its history. A well-organized display that reveals not only the major events in the history of the region, but something about the people who made Calistoga what it is. Most enjoyable!

A cute historical museum where you would find the connections of Harrison in SF with Harrison here. Also a good business lesson if you are into resort development.

We go to the Sharpsteen every summer vacation in Calistoga. They have some sort of special exhibit every year. Last year, period dolls... this year it was fasteners and buttons through the centuries. Super friendly docents have a wealth of information. Donations accepted. Wonderful!
