The museum is dedicated to preserving and telling the story of the city’s sea-faring history, as well as conserving the oceans for future generations. On Saturday, March 19th, SBMM invites all who live in Santa Barbara to the Seaside Soiree: Tidepools and Treasures fundraiser. Held on the elegant outdoor deck of the museum, this event promises to be a delightful evening. Museum patrons are invited to come at 4:30 p.m. for a delicious seafood dinner created by Executive Chef James Siao of Finch and Fork. Vintage wines will be paired with the meal by the sommeliers of the Foley Food and Wine Society.
