Located in the center of the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley, The Wildling Museum is where art and nature meet! Beautiful art and thoughtful interpretation are combined to inspire our visitors to better appreciate and preserve our country's natural areas.
In addition to a selection of artworks from our permanent collection, view watercolors of California native plants by British artist Patrick O'Hara, on loan from the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden. Smithsonian Museum Day passholders will receive 10% off on gift store items (not including sale items or consignment items).
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.
