I have taken groups of Road Scholars/Elderhostel people to the Ag Museum over the last several years and it always gets high marks. The staff and the exhibits are top notch.

Loved the exhibits, the stories and displays all related to agriculture! Coupled with visiting the other museums our city has to offer make for a very pleasant day trip to Santa Paula. We have several wonderful restaurants to enjoy was well!

This is favorite of mine, as I live in Santa Paula and spent a great deal of time in agriculture. You will find this museum in an old mill. A fine place to see how the agriculture supported this lovely town and surrounding area. There are pieces of farm equipment to see and the kid's to sit atop. It gives... More

Outside, brilliant design that fits so well with our old Mill, surrounding attractions. Inside, you are greeted by the Beans, Beets and babies heritage of Oxnard, the fields of our county and implements of farming and food production. To see this collection is to understand our County heritage, one that hopefully will endure beyond these walls. Politicians, listening?

What a great little museum. We learned a lot about farms, what was grown in the area and what was used to harvest. The kids enjoyed the few things they had that were hands on, such as the climb on tractor. They also liked learning about dangerous garden bugs, and looking at the bees they had on display.

Very well done. Easy to spend 2 hours looking at agricultural equipment, learning how agricultural practices have changed and learning about the history of the region. Perfect for couples and families.

This seems to be a newer museum in a great building (right by the train tracks), and there were marvelous well-documented displays as well as lot of things geared toward kids. We loved it!
