Visitors will also get a unique view into the history of Calistoga during its period as a hot springs resort during the 1860s with a series of meticulously detailed dioramas of the city.

California’s first millionaire, Sam Brannan, purchased much of the property for his Hot Springs Resort in 1859. The resort was completed in 1862, and visitors to the Sharpsteen Museum will get a view of the city and resort in the diorama. Created using photographs and prints of the city during that period, the diorama took nearly three years to complete

  • I've been to Calistoga dozens of times and never came here. Now that I know about it I will bring the kids. Wonderful displays.

  • Preserving the history of Calistoga and upper Napa valley, the Sharpsteen Museum is a destination created by Walt Disney animator and producer, Ben Sharpsteen. This location features dioramas, artifacts, antiques and exhibits designed by Ben and his team of highly creative artists. If a fan of Disney, you’ll notice the resemblance of highly intricate hand-work that typically ordains the Disneyland theme park is one-in-the-same at this museum.
  • Very interesting lots to see and lots to read as you go through the rooms.
