The museum is world class and easy to experience during a short break from dining, shopping and wine tasting on the square. The new museum shop is terrific too.

We saw an unusual show of small subtle works by Richard Deibenkorn. They specialize in unusual and you will be fortunate when you make time for a stop.

We happened to hit this gem on a free monthly day but would have paid to see their exhibit. Very well done with a video presentation and children's activity area too. For the size this was very impressive.

Museum is a nice place to visit if you have an hour or so to take in some lovely art. It is easy to find when you explore the quaint shops in Sonoma.

A nice local museum with many examples of local artists. Wine country themes are of course, predominate. There are some good examples of ancient Spanish art, probably from original settlers. Worthwhile to visit, knowledgeable docents.
