Current exhibit

SOLe ItaliANO

Through January 10, 2021

The Vacaville Museum presents an exhibit on the Italians in Solano County, from the early English Hills ranch workers and owners to the Prisoners of War at the Benicia Arsenal to 4th generation wine producers.

Three general waves of immigration are explored, from the earliest migrants trying to find a better life, to newcomers escaping the ruins of World War II, to more recent arrivals looking for opportunities in tech and scientific fields.
