Santa Barbara Historical Museum

Find out how Santa Barbara became America’s Riviera! Celebrate the history of our community from the Chumash to the modern day with vibrant exhibitions and compelling programs, conveniently located in the heart of historic downtown. Discover the glamorous film era, legendary Fiesta festival, and pioneering aviators who changed the world – and that’s just the twentieth century!

Visitors experience the Museum’s Spanish era adobe in the center of historic downtown, and our signature exhibitions, The Story of Santa Barbara, an overview of our city’s five-hundred-year history, along with the Edward Borein Gallery, devoted to the art and life of one of the most highly regarded artists of the American West.
