  • Much of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art is closed while a massive enlargement process is underway, but that makes it just the right size for a short visit. Besides two or three short-term exhibitions,...  more »
  • A compact treasure indeed. We visited this museum in April 17 and it is worth a visit. The children section by David Wiesner is wonderful. It aroused the child in me. My wife and I ,both in sixties we...  more »

  • If you've been to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles on Grand Avenue, you have an idea of what to expect from the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. The experience is just smaller in scale. The Santa Barbara Museum of Art has some incredible displays and artists. The atmosphere is "other worldly", in that you realize you've left the world of stores, noise and cars and landed in an environment filled with inspiration and color. There's going to be some extensive remodeling in 2017 on the museum, but its worth a visit. There's a neat gift store and small, casual restaurant attached at street level. Plan on at least a half day, maybe even a full day. The collections are that extensive.
  • Got an intimate tour of the permanent collection. Don't know if that's​ normal. Very special experience with the amazingly​ human museum staff. Memorable experience!
  • They had a fabulous exhibition on....David Weisner! Superb. Regular featured art was also good. ...Degas...Monet. Lovely staff.
  • We visited the gallery with wordless stories and it was breath taking. I was a bit apprehensive about visiting because we did so on a whim and was hoping it wouldn't be a waste of money but I would have paid twice the entrance fee to go again. Definitely a good stop if you're walking State St.
  • Nice place to kill some time. Decent collection.
