Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History
Lovely was to spend some time downtown. Not only the museum but many restaurants and shops. Enjoy people watching.
Great little museum, be sure to stop at the attached Abbott Square market for lunch or a snack afterwards.
The Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History is a nonprofit educational institution in Santa Cruz, California, located at the downtown McPherson Center. Its mission is to ignite shared experiences and unexpected connections, using art and history to build a stronger, more connected community
“Learn about the natural history of Santa Cruz and what created this paradise by the sea. Learn how and why the Monterey Bay depends on our sea otter population to stay alive or what a Thule reed is with a visit to the SC Museum of Natural History! Visit the life size model of a Blue Whale, great for kids!”
“Funloving kids and adults will enjoy this place. Entrance is free, it's right on the beach, and Santa Cruz is a stereotypical California Beach town.”
“Right next to the Harbor, great views both upstarts and downstairs. Has music and comedy night. Love the calamari and clam chowder. Nice salad bar. Full bar. ”
