Discover The Wildling

wildling-museum-solvang-caWelcome to the brand-new blog Celebrating Solvang! Be sure to visit frequently for our latest local insider tips in “California’s Little Denmark.” Velkommen!

Have you spotted this carved, wooden sign as you’re strolling along Mission Drive near Fifth Street in downtown Solvang? Do not hesitate for a second and enter into the new Solvang home of the Wildling Museum “where art and nature meet.” Formerly in Los Olivos, this newly expanded three-story art space is so open with lots of natural light you’ll be amazed to discover everything inside. Check out the current exhibition “Santa Ynez River Wilderness” featuring original works created by members of the famed Oak Group. Upstairs, there’s room for classes—Art on the Wild Side every Saturday morning is great for kids ages 4+ and only $5—plus the museum is available for private party rentals and meetings, too. There’s some really original art and jewelry in the gift shop, just in time for holiday shopping. It’s so great to have the Wildling as our fifth museum in Solvang. Can you name all of them?
