Founded in 1932, this museum is located in the historic El Pueblo Viejo district. Evoke the romance of early Spanish California by celebrating your wedding or special occasion on the grounds of this cultural landmark. Enjoy the ambience of two private, interconnected courtyards distinguished by native and exotic landscaping and accented with splashing fountains. This venue is ideal for outdoor celebrations. The Museum Courtyard is an idyllic setting for your romantic Santa Barbara wedding. Exchange vows under a dreamy wooden pergola, which you can accent with drapes and flowers. Host your reception alfresco for a true night of dancing under the stars. Use string lights, banners, and lounge patio furniture to complement the space.
