We are excited to be hosting our annual fundraiser for education programs, the Mission Creek Soiree, on Saturday, May 18.
For this special event, the Museum Backyard, Santa Barbara Gallery, Mammal Hall, and Bird Halls are temporarily closed to the public. The Museum will close early at 3:30 PM.
But don't worry, there's plenty more to explore all over campus, including a sneak peek of our new dinosaur exhibit Prehistoric Forest!
Museum: Free auto parking in Museum lot / Free bike parking at Chad the Blue Whale (12 spaces) and MacVeagh House (6 spaces)
Sea Center: Nearby city-owned lots offer the first 90 minutes free and then charge $2.50 per hour thereafter.
