Time of year
We happened to be in town for the Thursday Night Art Walk and enjoyed the art museum. There are some treasures here and worth visiting. We also saw young children involved in art projects during the evening event.
This small museum has interesting shows. When I was there, a lot was closed, so they charged a discount.
My family and I went on a day trip to Santa Barbara. We stopped by the Museum of Art. My son enjoyed the Moon activities set up for kids and created a drawing as well. The Museum has a varied collection from Monet to Kehinde Wiley.
some interesting art work there well worth viewing and being a non profit venue it was free for the viewing
This museum has an excellent collection for a smaller city. Be aware that it is under construction and yet is OPEN. There is public parking nearby, but not on at the museum itself.
