About the Campaign

The Museum is celebrating its centennial year by undertaking a $20 million capital campaign that will prepare us to serve our community for the next 100 years!

The project is underway and includes new gallery programs and experiences, exhibit renovations, and essential Museum infrastructure and site improvements.

The Museum’s Centennial Campaign is allowing us to upgrade our aging facilities in ways that will vastly improve our visitor experience. It will help expand spaces to tell current and relevant stories, reinforce ourselves as the regional authority for all things natural, and inspire generations of visitors with the artifacts, geology, ecology, and history that make the Santa Barbara region unique in the world.  And even more than facts and artifacts, our Museum is poised to truly inspire all who visit with programs, exhibits and hands-on nature experiences that will be literally life changing.

We’ve done this for 100 years, and we’re about to do it better.
