Inexpensive & easily viewed in less than an hour. A collection from one artist was on display when we we visited, showing an array of his work. Worth the visit!

This is a charming, two story, historic building located right next to the city park with lots going on. We have visted often, and are usualy pleased. However, it is small and one might not like the styles of art which are offered at the time.

It's small. It's focused. It has a real community connection. The Carnegie stages exhibitions you wouldn't expect to see but are always glad to have done.

Small but in a great historical building. They do change exhibits depending on events. It does not take long to view.

Site of a former Carnegie Public Library, this museum was small but it was absorbing to browse through the museum and view art of California artists.

I suggest you use cash for the entrance fee. Our credit card got charged 5 times over 7 months for the one time that we went there.

Nice older building, small but with some impressive art. Easy parking along the side and close to old Oxnard, restaurants, park. Also right on the main route to the harbor.

I have never been disappointed by an exhibition at the Carnegie Art Museum. The current David Gallup "Channel Islands" exhibition incorporating his above and below the surface paintings show incredible talent for depicting light and motion.

The Carnegie is a real find. Located in one of the classic librairys built by Andrew Carnegie, the museum hosts rotating shows primarily of California painters. The shows are always interesting showcasing the extraordinary diversity of California's painting history and present. A short distance off the 101 Freeway in the heart of downtown Oxnard it is well worth a slight... More
