Contemporary Art Museum Tours

Donald Hess initiated public access to his collection with the 1989 opening of The Hess Collection Winery in Napa Valley. The art museum there is housed in the original winery built in 1903. Since then, the Hess Art Collection contemporary art museums now includes the James Turrell Museum at Bodega Colomé in Argentina.

Because he passionately believes contemporary art should be made available to the widest possible audience and that collectors have a responsibility to make their collections accessible to the public to the best of their ability, the museums are open to the public and free of charge.
