    A lovely store with something of quality for everyone at every price. Books, original art and print reproductions, glass & pottery, mobiles and wall decor, colorful bandanas and money-belt sashes, orn...  more »

    I use to love coming here each year anticipating finding new treasures. This year, not so much. The offerings were a bit Boring and things you could purchase most anywhere. Lots of items made in China...  more »

    More of a gift store than gallery but pleasant and bought some nice things. Wish I'd had hundreds and thousands to spend on the art!  more »

    This used to be a very good gallery. Now it's just a tourist shop. Kind of sad.

    Just visited Yosemite last week, and on a particularly lousy, rainy day, my wife and I spent a good amount of time in the Ansel Adams Gallery. Actually, we visit every time we're in the park, and every time it's a pleasure, and my wife always comes away with some artwork made by local artists. Beautiful art, cards, photographs (obviously!), jewelry, etc. What always gets my attention is the photography gear. If you're in the valley to do some photography, and forgot anything, there's a good chance the AAG will have it. My wife surprised me with the purchase of a MindShift backpack that I'd been eyeing. When I was off taking pics, she headed back and chatted with knowledgeable staff regarding the various packs. Got one for me that is amazing (BackLight 26L) that I know will make many return trips with me to the valley. And on the note of photography, on-staff photographers can help with questions, location-recommendations, and even one-on-one help (for a fee). Overall, just a great place, and a must-visit for anyone who enjoys the art of photography.

    It was just a merchandise for the photographer's photos and some souvenirs. The photos are pretty nice but I wouldn't waste my time there.

    If you ever find yourself needing inspiration while in the park, look no further.

    Of course the prints here are stunning. However, what once was a sacred shrine to world class photography is now cluttered with kitschy clap trap imported from factories developing world that produce this junk with unethical labor and environmental practices. Most of it has nothing to do with Yosemite and you can buy the same trinkets in at least 3 other stores in The Valley, so please have some pride in differentiation. Please restore the spiritual experience (along with your dignity) and do the art justice by decluttering the space. With sincere concern, @Frazier_Far_Out

Where to stay in Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park offers something for everyone. Choose from upscale or historic hotels, a well-appointed lodge, motel rooms, rustic cabins, canvas tent cabins, and developed campgrounds. Yosemite Village in the heart of the valley is the most convenient place to stay, but other accommodations line the roads leading to the village. If you can't secure a place inside the park, try the various lodges, inns, bed and breakfasts, cabins, cottages, and motels on the roads leading in from the west. Staying any further out can cost you valuable time that you could be spending hiking, biking, and sightseeing. To escape from the crowds in the valley, reserve a campsite at Crane Flat or Hodgdon Meadow, which are far enough out to provide solitude but close enough to reach major valley attractions in less than half an hour. Campgrounds along Tioga Road see even fewer crowds. If you plan to visit in summer, you must reserve accommodations (even campsites) well in advance, as Yosemite remains extremely popular with both visitors from afar and those based in California.
