“Nice sized museum for kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2012

The George Stuart miniatures rooms was a hit. The nearby fountain and park is also fun to add on.

“Unique and Changing Exhibits”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2012

Enjoyed a gallery full of originals by children's book illustrator Simm Taback, then was mesmerized by the delicate and stunning mannequins representing historical figures from the Victorian age. Exhibits change often, so when you go you'll see something different than what I saw; but I trust curators will give you something equally as enchanting as what I viewed.

“It is updated and the exhibits are interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2011

It is worth the time to stop in and visit this museum if you are in Ventura. Be sure to see the George Stuart collection of historic dolls. It is located on Main St. near many restaurants, antique and thrift stores, movie theater, and the San Buenaventura Mission.

“Wow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2011

The newly expanded facility houses a wonderful collection of art and historical artifacts dating back to the native Indian populations of Ventura. The name of the museum has recently changed to Museum of Ventura County. Some maps show the former temporary location when you search on-line so be sure to go to the proper address on Main Street near the Mission San Buenaventura.
