California Museum for History, Women & the Arts

Sharon, Jack, Tom, Becky, Eric, Rosemary and I went to the California Museum for History, Women and the Arts. The main draw was a current exhibit called Treasures from Hearst Castle. Although smaller than I might have hoped, it was a nice exhibit.

Both Sharon and I read The Chief, an excellent biography of William Randolph Hearst, in 2001. Additionally, we took a trip to Heart Castle for our anniversary in 2002. Both of these things provided a fairly rich reference point for the collection.

Jack also enjoyed a very large interactive map of California that allowed you to trace the history of California's population, transportation, water development and geology. He and I probably spent 20 minutes on this exhibit.

After the museum, the group headed to the new Scott's Seafood Grill and Bar on the river for an early dinner. I had the Togarashi Seared Ahi Tuna, while Sharon had Char Broiled Scotish Salmon.
