This Gallery remains a Best/Adams Family business and provides a wonderful selection of Ansel Adams' work (both original and prints). There's also books, fine arts, and ins...

"From its origin in 1902 in a tent in the California wilderness, Best's Studio, The Ansel Adams Gallery, has evolved into a center that celebrates the arts and the natural grandeur of our environment.  The Ansel Adams Gallery strives to cultivate an aesthetic appreciation and concern for our world by offering visitors a unique variety of books, handcrafts, fine arts, and an extraordinary collection of Ansel Adams original photographs." ~The Best/Adams Family -------- Much more than a gallery.  Yosemite National Park's Ansel Adams Gallery, located in Yosemite Village on the valley floor, is full of information, camera equipment and accessories, quite a variety of specialty gift shop-type items, and, of course...

I always stop here at the very least once every time I visit Yosemite even if I visit 3-4 times a year. I usually come for the Ansel Adams postcards to send to friends and family then end up browsing the original prints for sale from Ansel Adams and a variety of other artists. They also have bowls, jewelry, tons of books & posters, other knickknacks, and of course camera supplies and film.

If you join the Yosemite Fund formerly the Yosemite Association you get a coup...

The staff in the gallery was very helpful, and they wrapped our posters perfectly so they...

The Ansel Adams Gallery isn't just some lame bid to draw people to buy crummy Ansel Adams reproductions; it's the continuation of a family business that started in the year that Ansel Adams was born.  You see, Adams' wife was a fantastic lady named Virginia Best, who grew up in Yosemite with a father that ran Best's Studio, a painting gallery.  So when Ansel and Virginia got married, Ansel ultimately married into the family business; YNP let him rename the gallery at some point after he had already become an accepted master of photography.  As I understand it, even today Adams' children or grandchildren are still involved with the business. So - what is the Ansel Adams Gallery?  It's a little shop in Yosemit...
