Owner description: The Wildling Museum is where are and nature meet. Through beautiful art exhibitions and programs, we hope to inspire the next generation of artists and conservationists. We feature 3-4 art exhibitions at any one time as well as offer many childrens, family and adult art classes and lectures throughout the year. We also have a wonderful gift shop full of unique gifts and nature and hiking guides and maps (proceeds support the museum). The Wildling is a nonprofit, 501 (c) (3) organization.

“Loved the Channel Islands exhibit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2011

We went to the Wildling museum to see the Channel Islands exhibit. It was really nice. It doesn't take a long time to see the museum, but it is worth a trip and they have nice gifts in their gift shop.

“A special little art museum focusing on the wild places”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

We have been to the Wildling many times and try to catch every exhibition. I have been awestruck by some of the pieces they exhibit and they do an excellent job in both the shows they bring in and showing the pieces to their greateat advantage. Many people go to Los Olivos to go wine tasting but do take a break and enjoy this little gem. A donation is requested and it is worth the small fee.

“a gem, combining wild nature with excellent art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

We saw the Channel Island Exhibit on this visit, which was both beautiful and informative. This small museum is the size of a single gallery of the large SB Museum of Art, but the requested entry fee is appropriately modest. The staff and volunteers are friendly, and the gift store has several fine artistic books and other items with a nature theme.

“Friendly, informative and fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2010

All the staff is friendly and shares information freely with all visitors. The gallery shows all relate to nature in some way. The features in the gallery are worthy traditional shows not hippie or too modern. There is a lot of wine tasting in the little town of Los Olivos and many other galleries to visit. Los Olivos is a walking town everything is close by.
