  • Cute museum with so many things to learn about the area. Had a great time visiting with my 13 year old son. Learned about the history of Santa Barbara, the lighthouse keepers, military, etc. Worth the visit.
  • A place that you can learn a lots about history. Visited to this place bring back a memories of my late father. I had 1 compass which similar with the one shown here. History of California can be found here, especially for the petroleum industry
