This is a great museum with great collections in a very unusual place. Highly recommended. Take the train from LA and walk around downtown Oxnard with great food and this amazing gem...or drive up the PCH and visit the 2 great car museums as well.

This is a gorgeous museum with wonderful speakers and exhibits of well known artists! It's also located in historic downtown Oxnard right near a Starbucks if you need a beverage!

A small museum that holds one exhibition at a time. Exhibitions are always interesting examples of California art and/or artists. You can see the entire show in less than an hour. Don't miss the basement, where a rotating selection of art from the permanent collection...More
