Year Founded:

   As the finest regional natural history museum in California, we enlighten the public by developing and presenting fundamental knowledge of natural history research, teaching and inspiring a lifelong passion & abiding respect for the natural world.
    Set on eleven oak-shaded acres in historic Mission Canyon and crossed year-round by Mission Creek, the Museum campus features a cluster of Spanish-style buildings and easy nature walks. The Museum features eleven exhibit halls, focusing on regional natural history, including birds, insects, mammals, marine life, paleontology, Native Americans and the Chumash Indians.
    We also feature a life-size Blue Whale skeleton, a planetarium, an antique natural history art gallery, a museum store and special programs featuring outstanding lecturers and films. Two new permanent halls will be opening in 2008: Mineral & Gem Gallery and Bird Diversity Hall.
    The Museum has the only natural science database and collections repository specializing in the Santa Barbara region. We house the largest collection of Chumash Indian artifacts outside the Smithsonian. Our shell collection and bird egg collection are among the most significant in the country. More than 150,000 people visit the Museum each year.
