Santa Barbara, CA. September 7, 2021 – Do you enjoy meeting and taling with people from California, across the US, and around the world? Do you want to share your love of our beautiful harbor? Would you like the best view in Santa Barbara right outside your window? Do you have three hours a week to volunteer? If so, the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum (SBMM) is the place for you!

The Santa Barbara Maritime Museum wants outgoing and enthusiastic individuals to welcome visitors at its 4th floor Outdoors Santa Barbara Visitor Center. Volunteers make connections between the Museum and visitors from around the world. Volunteers also help maintain displays and assist with special events, exhibit openings, art receptions, and community festivals.

Volunteers enjoy the social environment of the Museum, make new friends, and gain a feeling of fulfillment knowing that they are part of an organization that values Santa Barbara’s rich maritime history and tradition.

For more information on how to volunteer, contact Jesse Baker-Lorelli, Volunteer Coordinator, or 805 456-8748. To apply, complete a volunteer application at
