The Santa Barbara Maritime Museum's structure is located in the Santa Barbara Waterfront Center and was formerly known as the Old Naval Reserve Center. Before it opened as a museum in 2000, this structure served as a training facility for the Navy for more than fifty years. Today, its interactive displays inform visitors about marine life, health, and history. Permanent and temporary exhibits fill the two-story structure and explore the Channel's maritime past, from native Chumash activity to commercial fishing, military use, yachting, and coastal trade, and the great periscope is a popular attraction.
