Santa Barbara Highlight: Yes, We Have Moxi!

By

One of our favorite words in the English language is "moxie".  Here is the definition: 

  1. The ability to face difficulty with spirit and courage.
  2. Aggressive energy; initiative.
  3. Skill; know-how.

No, I did not misspell the word in the title.  Moxi in Santa Barbara is also known as The Wolf Museum of Innovation + Exploration.

The following paragraph is from their website:

The Innovation Workshop is MOXI's very own makerspace open to all museum guests. The space includes a variety of tools from the hi-tech to the no-tech and everything in between. Stop in on your visit to explore, make + create with us!

October in the Innovation Workshop: Create something creepy and find some inky inspiration. Craft a mask for spooky season, design a mini monster, explore the possibilities with ink and more! 

Activities in the Innovation Workshop rotate monthly at the start of the new month and range from upcycling projects to engineering challenges to working on collaborative projects and everything in-between! Included with general admission.

In keeping with the spooky October theme, they have an innovation project called Monsters Ink.  On Friday, October 12, they have a happy hour.  The price of admissions $12 and this is would be a wonderful opportunity to explore all 3 floors.

Every Tuesday, they have Toddler Tuesdays, from 10:00AM to Noon.  The exhibits look fun, and we have not had the time to explore this museum.  It is on our list!

This is our second entry into the October Challenge.

It is hosted by Kathy Streib 

Thank you Kathy for this great idea!

Hello A and Ron and Moxie, at first I figure it was a soda from the 50's till I saw what you have about it.  Make it a great day!

Hi Alexandra... what a wonderful concept! Really unique. And the Moxi building is also unique and quite spectacular, especially against the night sky.

Nina Hollander, Broker we needed to get out yesterday evening after a full day.  It was such a pleasure eating at a wonderful restaurant...and the night was perfect for a walk back to our car.  A

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - I really like the architecture of that building! I can only imagine how easy it is to get lost while you marvel at all that is stored inside. It would be a great way to spend the day!

Most museums are a very special place and that one, with the unusual name is extra special

Hello Alexandra and Ron - I also like the word moxie which doesn't seem to get as much use these days - this museum experience also seems intriguing.

That sounds like a very interesting museum and I am guessing my boy Elon has had some influence with some of the things in the museum.

Hi Ron and Alexandra- I was watching The Holiday last night starring Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law and Jack Black and in it one of the characters mentioned the word gumption. Moxi reminds me a bit of that.

Moxi is a word I've used often over the years, just not lately.  Glad you brought it back around! The Moxi museum sounds  a great place to enjoy and explore!  Love it!  Total Moxi!
