Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History Sea Center reviews
This is another stop we made on our SB Trolley Tour a good enlightenment of the California area and SB history more »
I've been coming here since I went to school at UCSB in 1981, and always enjoy myself and learn something. Absolutely beautiful facilities. The exhibits are a bit dated and could use some cleaning..... more »
Great place! Most of the staff is super knowledgeable about local sea life and the ecology. Feeding the sharks was amazing. However, one staff member was a tad argumentative about a particular shark I have a lot of experience with. (He remained professional and was admittedly not as familiar as I was. No big deal. He's a good guy. )
Amazing little Aquarium for Kids who love sea animals. My kids 4.5 and 7 enjoyed touching the sharks and the rays, the sea stars and the anemones in this little gem. The staff is helpful and eager to share their knowledge! Even though its on the smaller size, and doesn’t have a lot of exhibits, the exhibits it does have are awesome and very well taken care of.
