Great Art Museum

Great place to visit local and other artists. Those visiting this city would find it a great place to visit with their children as well.

The museum is the former headquarters of Limoneira. It was built in the 1920s. Lovely building, pleasant architecture. Not large, but a very nice selection of local artists and some older historical pieces. Worth stopping into if in the area.

It is surprising indeed that a small agricultural town like Santa Paula would have three good museums! This one, located in a beautifully restored building, is well worth a visit!

The Santa Paula Art Museum is housed in the old Limoneira building in downtown Santa Paula and is right next door to the Santa Paula Oil Museum and not too far from the Museum of Ventura Agricultural Museum. If you are in Santa Paula you should visit all three of these museums as each shows a different part of the... More

For a small town, this is a really nice spot. It's well worth the drive. Have lunch while you're there and make a day of it.

This art museum is such a pleasant place to visit. The building is beautifully restored, and provides a wonderful backdrop for the exhibits. Right now there are three exhibits which are definitely worthwhile--the gorgeous sculptures of Michele Chapin, paintings by Susan Petty, and portraits by painter Gail Pidduck and photographer John Nichols. These are all local Ventura County artists who... More

It is a small, yet very wonderful art museum. Many of their exhibits show beautiful artwork. The volunteers who work there are very, very friendly.

The museum is walking distance from the Santa Paula Depot and three other museums. One of the several murals in the city is outside the back door. There are two main exhibit spaces and while the museum is not large, it has many wonderful exhibits, many owned by the city. The admission price is modest and we enjoyed our visit.... More
