or grand children. Enclosed, so it's safe from the street. Areas just for the children. It's not so big that you feel overwhelmed. Good exhibits and the docents are very knowledgeable.

My last visit was as a volunteer for World Ocean Day. This museum is in a convenient location (on Main Street across from Mission San Buenaventura). And afterward, you can walk to the beach (4 blocks away).

since 13,000 BC. The museum appears more for locals . I expected more in the chumosh natives if spelled correctly. Apparently, the Chumosh lived on the Channel Islands since 13,000 BC. I wanted to
learn more about them ans not musical instruments. For the price it is worth it but needs more
Chumosh artifacts.

We had originally planned to visit another museum but it was closed. The exhibits were varied with an interesting special exhibit of musical instruments. The historical displays helped answer questions regarding the native populations & the early community.

A room featuring a local artist was captivating and caused me to spend more time in the museum than I had anticipated.

The gift shop was very nice - good variety of books dealing with the local area.
