This is a small museum that combines information about the history of the region and of Ojai with a few relevant pieces of art. The permanent exhibits explain the history of the Chumash peoples and later settlers and gave me a quick but insightful introduction to Ventura County and to Ojai. I was also fortunate to see the Founding Familias exhibit, which is also professionally done and includes local artifacts (a hair wreath, Spanish-style trousers, bridles and saddles). I loved the photos of the descendants from the founding families, some of whom contributed to the exhibit. It really gave a sense of the cultures and traditions of the area flowing down to the present day. Without visiting this museum, I would not have appreciated the history or the stories of the people who settled this area.

We recently visited this museum with our 5 year old daughter. Having returned to Ojai after almost ad decade, it gave us a very good perspective on the City's history, native plants, people, and how it has evolved throughout the years.

The museum celebrated a Jubilee Year from Ojai Day 2016 through Ojai Day 2017. It represented the museum's 50th anniversary and the centennial of the E.D. Libbey-led transformation of dusty Nordhoff into beautiful Spanish-style village of Ojai. So much of informational exhibits,it was amazing.
