Santa Barbara Museum of Art has reopened

One of the most popular art museums on the Central and South Coasts has reopened their doors to the public this week.

It houses works from some of the most famous artists in the world, the country and the region - from Monet to Matisse.

After a year where they’ve had to shift online, because of the pandemic, this week Santa Barbara Art Museum welcomed back visitors.

It's been a difficult year, says the museum’s director, Larry Feinberg.

"We were able to do a fair amount on line, but of course it's not the same. It's been difficult being closed to the public for so long," he told KCLU.

"It did give the staff a lot of time to plan forthcoming exhibitions but we are really excited to be open again," said Feinberg.

SBMA will return to normal operating hours of Tuesday – Sunday, 11 am – 5 pm and Thursday, 11 am – 8 pm.
