13 of 13
For aspiring writers, a visit to John Steinbeck’s hometown is a peek into how the author’s classic novels came to life. Visitors can crank up the engine of a real Model T following instructions from East of Eden. In a barn inspired by The Red Pony, children can climb on a model pony, brush his tail and mane, and learn to braid a rawhide rope. While the exhibits focus on Steinbeck’s works, they also give insight into specific moments in American history.
