SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

Santa Barbara's Maritime Museum is showing off its 160-year-old lighthouse lens.

The lens came from Point Conception to be restored and is now on display at the museum.

The lens was built in Paris in the 1800s and it helped guide travelers around Point Conception for about 150 years.
