|About these ratings|
In the heart of downtown on bustling State Street, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art infuses some high culture into this laid-back Californian community. Gazing upon collections containing American, Asian and European art, recent visitors are impressed with the diversity and number of works in such a petite space. However, the Monets steal much of the attention. Also, most travelers applaud the museum's special exhibits.
One Yelp.com user explains, "A tiny gem of a museum ... This is a well-curated museum, with a small section on each period of art. … The changing exhibits are also a joy."
The museum is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is $9 for adults with discounts for students, children and seniors. For more information, check out the official website.
