  • An old lighthouse is what this museum calls home. It's a nice little stop if you want to see some sights in Santa Cruz and the area it's located has a nice view of the ocean. Can get a bit crowded sometimes (I believe the have a limit of people that can be in at once to remedy this) and crowding can be a pain if it's a busy day. That said I'd definitely go again to see some of the cool stuff they had.
  • I have been there, but not since 1979, 1976. First time was with my friend in his 1968 Olds Cutlass, they must have gotten over their thing against big block engines in mid sized cars because his had a 455 in it! We continued on to Roseburg, OR. I will finish this later.
  • 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.
