Santa Barbara Museum Of Art
The museum has an amazing collection for such a small town, thanks to the many wealthy people who live in the area. It has the largest collection of Claude Monet paintings on the west coast. It is currently undergoing a huge remodel and by 2021 it will be even more impressive than it is now. And…
Beautiful art. After visiting walk down State Street for ice cream at McConnells.
Comprises 27,000 works of art – an art museum of magnitude and quality more commonly found in cities eight times the size of Santa Barbara
Located downtown Santa Barbara and home to both permanent and special collections, includes Asian, American, and European art that spans 4,000 years from ancient to modern.
Point of Interest
“Wonderful original historic building. Great to see a movie there as it has an actual Spanish town inside surrounding the proscenium arch and stage !”
“The courthouse has a long history of fires, earthquakes and rebuilds. The architecture is so different, moorish elements and Spanish revival with some wacky design features thrown in. The 360 degree view at the top gives you the best overall view of Santa Barbara. Not to be missed! You can tour for free daily and there are one hour guided tours daily at 2 PM and 10:30 Monday, Tuesday and Friday. Santa Barbara.com. 1100 Anacapa St., SB ”
“Well laid out gardens representing many different eco systems of California. Peaceful and delightful.”
“Fantastic concert space with panoramic views and not to big. Drinks and snacks also available. Take a jacket because it can get chilly as it’s open air. ”
“Located in the Harbor, a fun indoor historical maritime museum. We love this spot in the harbor and its an easy walk from Villa Azul, be sure you catch a ride the Lil Toot afterwards for a tour of the harbor or get to take outfood and watch the boats go by.”
