Support the Museum by

  • Becoming a member!
  • Making a tax-deductible donation

We love Santa Barbara history!  Generous individuals like you can help sustain the Museum all year long.  We hope you will consider a year-end gift to further this cause.  Because of you, we’ve been able to serve our community in many ways:

  • Accessibility!  We are proud to be one of few museums offering free admission to all.
  • International!  We’re currently hosting the internationally acclaimed (and bilingual!) exhibition, Designing America: Spain’s Imprint in the U.S.
  • Family friendly!  This past summer we introduced our first children’s interactive exhibition, The Haunted Mirror.  We’re receiving rave reviews from parents, teachers and most importantly kids.
  • Personal!  From sharing memories through Project Fiesta!, to helping thousands of people explore their roots in our Gledhill Library, your history is alive and vibrant here.

A challenge for our patrons:
We are so thankful to have the support of two generous donors leading the way towards our year-end campaign.  Together they have created a challenge that allows your gift to make a bigger impact.  Every dollar you donate to the Museum will be matched dollar for dollar.  If you give during this November and December, your gift will double:  $100 becomes $200; $1,000 becomes $2,000; and, $5,000 becomes $10,000.

Your year-end support is crucial to the success of the Museum so please act now and make your gift today!
