Where can we park?

Buses: Please drop off on Kimberly Avenue right behind MOXI (white curb – 3-minute parking).  There is free bus parking on W. Montecito Street, parallel to the 101 freeway. Buses are not permitted to stop on State Street in front of the museum.

Cars: Parking is available at the train station parking lot (City Lot #3, right next to MOXI). The first 75 minutes are free and every additional hour is $2.50. There is limited free street parking nearby. Additional parking can be found in any of the nearby Santa Barbara city lots.

Can we eat lunch at MOXI?

Unfortunately, we do not allow food or beverages into MOXI and we do not have an area within the museum for field trips to eat lunch. Most of our field trips or groups that bring lunches, eat at the grassy area right next to MOXI or walk down to the grass area or sitting wall at the beach. If you are planning to bring lunches, please leave them on the bus as we do not have refrigeration.

What is your cancellation and refund policy?

Deposits are non-refundable. Refunds are available for cancellations two weeks prior to the reservation date. Cancellations made less than two weeks in advance are non-refundable.
