  • Entrance to the Museum is $7 for adults and 5 for pensioners. Nothing special but very entertaining. And informative and original. I think if you came to town-worth 50-60 minutes here.

  • It is free and awesome place to Learn the history of santa Barbara. They have really good explanation of the different stages of the city
  • Small but full of terrific information amd one of a kind treasures and artifacts from the founding of this incredible Californian city.
  • We love using Santa Barbara Historical Museum as a wedding and event venue. The team is wonderful and easy to work with and the rules of the historical property are fair and easy to understand.
  • A small and nice museum but not what I expected. There is no big picture of the local history though the exhibitions are good.
  • Attended wedding after hours on Monday prior to Thanksgiving. It was beautiful setting for it but rustic dirt floors. Never entered museum itself so can't speak to that. Catering was great.
