This is a maust see for trips to Santa Cruz. Located on the point, the views are incredible, the information is unique to the area where surfing was first brought to the mainland (on redwood surfboards!). Beaches to on side, surfing on the other, this point is a park.
Small museum, but worth a quick visit if you have time. Serves as a good reminder of how powerful and unforgiving the ocean can be. It was interesting to see the photos of the first people who surfed (and brought surfing) to the area from Hawaii. I love the lighthouse that it is located in. Neat building.
Finally stopped into the museum after visiting and living here for years. It was quite a little gem, not to mention the grounds are perfect viewing for surfers and sea life. The museum is quite small, but with great articles and boards (of course), it's worth the time to stop in. The staff is also quite nice and willing to... 更多
This is a small, but interesting museum and a cool place to visit if you're in the area. The best part is that it sits right above the iconic Steamer Lane, which is a must do for surfers or a cool place to watch if you don't.
This museum is pretty small, but: you'll find so much information about the beginning of surfing in Santa Cruz. The setting is perfect right above the No. 1 spot of watching the local surfers on Steamer Lane in the old Lighthouse. Many original display items and pictures of the old days. No entry fee, but donations are welcome.
What could be better- something for everyone. Lighthouse ocean view with walk paths, watch surfers actually surfing, enter museum and learn some history about surfing, free parking. Museum is small but not boring- plus who wants to be inside when there is soooo much outside to take in.
This is one of the most interesting museums I've ever visited, as well as one of the most perfect locations for such a museum--in a lighthouse right on a cliff overlooking a popular surfing location in Santa Cruz. A free parking lot (the museum is also free, though donations are quietly encouraged and welcomed) on that same cliff, and a... 更多
I finally have the chance to visit this place. You go in and walk in clockwise pattern( follow the painted foot prints on the floor). The museum is so small- almost like human bumper cars inside. But, the little place does go through the history of surfing. I am impressed.
This little museum has some of the best dispalys of surfing from the early 1900's through the present. I saw how ideal it was for tourist from all over the world.
