  • Great info, self guided tour, worth the trip to learn the history of Chumash Indians and Santa Barbara
  • Amazing part of Santa Barbara history! A must stop for any visitor!
  • Extremely overrated. The place is nice and ok to spend good 10 minutes, but they try to sell it like it's THE tourist attraction...is not.
  • They're hard at work with their restorations. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly.
  • Should not be missed if you are in the area. Beautiful.
