Family Night at the Maritime Museum: Back to School
Santa Barbara Maritime Museum’s Education Department encourages the curiosity of children through the use of interactive exhibits, experiential learning and community outreach programs with a special emphasis on California’s maritime history. At the Museum’s popular Family Nights, children and parents can visit the Museum’s exhibits, have their faces painted, enjoy building maritime-themed Lego projects, and engage in various arts and crafts for all ages led by local artists, all while learning about the ocean and maritime history. New activities for this month’s Family Night will include: Mini Fisherman and Crab LEGO® Builds, Sculpted Sea Creature Pencil Toppers and Fish Backpack Charms!
Adult and child-friendly refreshments will be provided.
