  • Everyone should check out the Surfing Museum to understand the history of surfing. Parking can be challenging so come before noon. The museum opens at 10 am. We noticed the lot fills up with surfers. ...  more »

  • Cute, little museum located right above a great surf spot (Steamers Lane) and by a wonderful seaside walking path/sidewalk.
  • Well the museum is a very small the history behind surfing is so important and this is where it all started it just takes you and lets you really appreciate the nature of the sport
  • It was okay. Cool things to learn about and everything, but the building is small and not much in there.
  • An interesting history of surfing located within the lighthouse makes this quaint little museum well worth visiting.
  • My wife and I vacationed to the area in June. We stayed in Santa Cruz one night and wee able to catch the surfers in the evening. This was such a big highlight for our vacation that we came back to kill an hour before we headed to catch our plane back home. Beautiful area with fantastic views.
