Hours are from 8 am to 3 pm (set-up 6:00 am to 8:00 am). Space rental fees vary (between $35 and $50) depending on size of space. Reservations may be made in person at the museum or by phone: (805) 684-3112, or via email up to one month prior to the event. For reservations greater than one month in advance, your name may be placed on the waiting list at any time; reservations are then made based on priority and space availability. When a space is secured, application and fee are due. Please see and download the Museum Marketplace Application and Vendor Rules.
