Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History reviews
The Museum hosted an event in the evening. The displays were available and outstanding. The catered food was perfect. and the entertainment--a trio-- was excellent. The museum is a true treasure..... more »
we took the SB Tour Trolley and this was one of our stops, we really enjoyed walking through the California history more »
This is a great small natural history museum. A must see if you make that second trip to Santa Barbara. The building and the grounds are beautiful and cool even on the hottest days, of which there aren't many in Santa Barbara. They have a regular butterfly exhibit which is very interesting and beautiful. We also saw a bunch of very well set up and designed animatronics dinosaurs in their dinosaurs exhibit. Kids would love it. Stroll along the woodlands trail outside the museum.
I hadn't been here for several years. It brought back many nice memories. Our grandchildren loved the dinosaur exhibit & we all enjoyed butterfly's alive. I was the lucky one to have one land on my shoulder!! 😀♥️
