Lots of history in this gallery. A visual feast, with several original Ansel Adams photographs, processed by him in his special artistic technique.

This place is more like a museum of Ansel Adams than a store. Love to see his pictures, and many of the other items for sale here. Everything is expensive so we have not purchased anything during our many visits.

This store has quality crafts and art. I was expecting all Ansel Adams photos but they have other artists. The jewelry was pretty but expensive.

We changed around our schedule to visit and didn't realize it was more of a gift shop than anything else - I should have read the reviews more closely - was expecting exhibits and more information about Ansel Adams vs books and posters/prints to purchase.

Nice assortment of Ansel Adams work and other artists. Quality items and not the usual touristy stuff

The offerings are not quite as unique as they use to be. Fewer items that relate to Yosemite, more touristy items. It's still my second favorite place to shop next to the little Indian museum shop.

The Best family owned the gallery when Adams first arrived to the valley. They let him play their piano and he married their daughter. The Best family still owns and operates this upscale gallery with all things Ansel for purchase. Located in Yosemite Village.

Stopped in and looked at the Ansel Adams prints. There were also oils by some other artists, nothing I would purchase.
