A nice collection of art in this museum that ranges across the world. My favorite in particular was the samurai armor they had on display along with a wakizashi, just gorgeous. Always worth a look see in a museum.
A strong dose of culture for anyone looking to escape L.A.'s oppressive urban sprawl. – In Short
Tony Santa Barbara, proudly located up the coast from the urban jungle of Los Angeles, is not the most obvious place to find world-class art. Still, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, housed in a grand old Spanish-style building, possesses such a large, varied and fantastic collection. Founded in 1941, this privately funded, nonprofit museum has made a point of amassing works in a wide range of media (paintings, sculpture, photography, works on paper), from all over the world (Europe, Asia, the Americas, and even California) and from numerous eras (ancient to modern art).
