  • A nice museum that gives you an excellent overview of the history of Santa Barbara. If you have enough time, it's well worth visiting this place.

  • Spent a lovely afternoon at this private event for the Dream Foundation. They had it at the SB Historical Museum garden area. Raised funds for the Flower Empower program, with both a silent and live auction. Bouquet making stations, a delicious luncheon and visiting with good friends. Highly recommend having events at this location.
  • A Jewel -- a bit of history and architecture, and a very nice series of traveling art exhibits focusing on life in olden times, rural themes and nature. Another reason why Santa Barbara is a special place.
  • We got married here a few weeks ago and it was absolutely perfect. Such a beautiful venue, would not change a thing about it.
  • An authentic look into the city's history! There is no admission fee, but donations are accepted.
  • Went to a wedding held there. Its a was great place to hold a wedding
