Owner description: The Wildling Museum is where art and nature meet! Through beautiful art exhibitions and programs, we hope to inspire the next generation of artists and conservationists. We feature 3-4 art exhibitions at any one time as well as offer many art classes and lectures for all ages throughout the year. Our hand-painted wall mural of a valley oak habitat is a beautiful way to become acquainted with our local landscape and wildlife. We also have a wonderful gift shop full of unique gifts and nature and hiking guides and maps (proceeds support the museum). The Wildling is a nonprofit, 501 (c) (3) organization.

We have been to the Wildling many times and try to catch every exhibition. I have been awestruck by some of the pieces they exhibit and they do an excellent job in both the shows they bring in and showing the pieces to their greateat advantage. Many people go to Los Olivos to go wine tasting but do take a break and enjoy this little gem. A donation is requested and it is worth the small fee.

We saw the Channel Island Exhibit on this visit, which was both beautiful and informative. This small museum is the size of a single gallery of the large SB Museum of Art, but the requested entry fee is appropriately modest. The staff and volunteers are friendly, and the gift store has several fine artistic books and other items with a nature theme.

All the staff is friendly and shares information freely with all visitors. The gallery shows all relate to nature in some way. The features in the gallery are worthy traditional shows not hippie or too modern. There is a lot of wine tasting in the little town of Los Olivos and many other galleries to visit. Los Olivos is a walking town everything is close by.
