Yes. The Museum has an onsite parking lot with handicapped parking spots and ramps up to the museum entrance and down to the historic adobes. All galleries are located on the first level and there are no stairs inside the galleries.
Our museum is housed in a steel reinforced concrete and adobe structure built in 1965, constructed in the adobe plaster style using bricks that were made on-site. The museum property was previously a Santa Barbara Gas and Electric Company site during the turn of the 20th century.
The adobes adjacent to the museum building in our lower courtyard are historic. Casa Covarrubias was built by Don Domingo Carrillo using Native American labor in 1817, while the Historic Adobe was built around 1831 at 924 Anacapa Street, and moved to its current location by John Southworth in 1924.
