  • This is one of my new favorite museums of all time. It's a small-ish museum that does double duty as both an art and a history museum but it does it well and does it in such a way as to make it look like, say, the Getty or the Guggenheim. I really mean it. The exhibits were so skilfully selected and it was just a tremendously fun time spending the evening there and I look forward to coming again.
  • I LOVE our 'new' Museum! I finally joined MAH after discovering how rich this place has become with events for all populations. There is constant activity here, and something for everyone. Usually low-cost to get in, and as a member, some stuff is free. This is a local gem in our community, bringing diverse, relevant, and entertaining events to Santa Cruz.
  • Love this place. A lot of local exhibits.
  • Absolutely beautiful, and a fantastic venue for a wedding!
  • Has really cheap admission especially for students and kids. Lots of free events and rotate displays on a good schedule. Staff is really nice.
