The Goleta Valley Historical Society invites you to experience Rancho La Patera by walking through the gardens, taking a guided tour of the Stow House, get an overview in the Visitor Interpretive Center, and enjoy hands-on exhibits in the Cavalletto History Education Center.
Historic Stow House exhibits are on permanent display. Artifacts may also be viewed in the Visitors' Center. Many new hands-on interactive items are in the History Education Center at the back of the ranch yard.
This venue will accept your Museum Day Live! ticket on the screen of your smartphone.
Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis. Smithsonian magazine encourages museum visitation, but is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of the participating museums and cultural venues, and does not subsidize museums that participate.
