Imagine being able to walk right up to a Blue Whale skeleton then turn around and see some authentic Native American artifacts. At Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History you and the whole family can take a walk through the history of the area. The museum boasts the largest collection of Chumash Indian artifacts in the world, while also catering to the natural history of insects, marine life and mammals. With two locations in Santa Barbara, the museum and the Ty Warner Sea Center provide a wide array of permanent and ever-changing exhibitions.
As a Southern California resident, familiarize yourself and the family with the fascinating marine life of the area while having fun perusing the diverse museum. All of this can be found in beautiful Santa Barbara which is just a short drive out to the coast. While at the museum be sure to check out the many hands-on learning experiences that cater to the little ones and the whole family, or enjoy a spectacular star scape at Gladwin Planetarium. After feeding the mind, be sure to satiate a hungry appetite at one of the museum’s several on-site eateries.
Cruise to the coast in a 2013 C300 4MATIC Sport Sedan from Mercedes-Benz of Encino to add to the experience. The classy comfort of this sedan will ensure the family arrives at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History safe and sound and ready to explore.
