Found a Free parking spot out front. During Old Spanish Days entry is free! A beautiful front building, walk through to the old Adobe structure. The staff very friendly 😊
Such a cool little museum. I was by myself the whole time. It’s not very big but it’s worth it. If you’re a student, it’s free. There’s parking in the back and you walk through a pretty courtyard to get to the front door. Great pictures that explain the history of Santa Barbara. Loved it!
