Santa Barbara Maritime Museum to Make a Splash with Inaugural Family Night

The Santa Barbara Maritime Museum is proud to announce its premier Family Night at the museum, which will take place from 4-7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29, 2016.

Family Night will be an opportunity to view the museum from an entirely different perspective. This exciting event will include a variety of maritime activities such as a pirate entertainer, face painting, U.S.S. America LEGO build, nautical crafts, slip-knot bracelets and a family-friendly movie in the Munger Theater.

Also included are kid-friendly snacks and adult-friendly beverages. Guests large and small can learn acrylic painting with instruction from resident artist Emily Falke, SBMM’s curator and director of education.

The evening’s goal is to present interactive learning activities for the entire family.

“Our new Gail and Barry Berkus Children’s Gallery has become a major attraction for the community,” said Executive Director Greg Gorga. “Naturally, the next step was to open the Maritime Museum on an afternoon and evening for children and their families. We welcome one and all to our first Family Night and look forward to adding the event to our quarterly calendar.”

Family Night will be an exciting opportunity for interactive family fun in the museum’s galleries. The youngest visitors will be encouraged to visit and enjoy the Children’s Gallery and explore their ever-widening world through creative activities and interaction.

Older children and adults are encouraged to visit and take part in the museum’s extensive exhibits and displays.

The mission of the museum’s education department is to encourage the curiosity of children through the use of interactive exhibits, experiential learning and community outreach programs with special emphasis on California’s maritime history.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
