History is best discovered through active learning. The Sharpsteen does its best to make learning an enjoyable experience as you move through the museum. Now with the help of technology, there is so much information and data available that the learning doesn’t have to end or begin at the museum. If you’re interested in learning more or searching for more information, please see the useful links and information below.

Larger and Better than I Expected - TripAdvisor, June 30, 2018


This museum not only displays the story of Ben Sharpsteen, an Oscar-winning American animator, director and producer for Disney, but it displays a comprehensive history of Calistoga. We only had one hour to visit the museum before it closed. We could have easily spent another hour there.
