Don't waste your time coming here just for that, but if you are in the area you can hop in for a few minutes (it's only one small room). It's free, but it's not open all the time. Other than that, the museum is located in a great spot to watch the surfers under the cliff. it's also close to one of the monarch butterflies reservation.Recommended for:Budget Travelers

The surfing museum is located at a lighthouse. There you'll find the history of surfing in Santa Cruz. Its collection of surfboard goes from those made with redwood board until the modern versions and high-tech. For sure is a place to visit once you're in Santa Cruz or stop by if driving on highway 1.

The museum is located at the Mark Abbott Memorial Lighthouse at Lighthouse Point on West Cliff Drive. Besides the museum itself you can walk by the Lighthouse Field State Beach and enjoy some nice and inspiring views.
You don't need to pay to enter the museum and the tiny room is filled with surf history, so it's a nice option for those around Santa Cruz.
