Voices of Ventura County

150th Celebration Monthly Digital Puzzles
Explore Ventura County’s history through monthly digital puzzles created using photographs from the Museum’s collection. For the 150th Celebration puzzles each month enjoy solving jigsaw puzzles featuring images from a new city.
The Place We Call Home
In honor of Ventura County’s 150th anniversary, the Museum of Ventura County (MVC) has curated an exhibition: Ventura County, The Place We Call Home, which opens Oct. 21 at the Agriculture Museum.
150th Feast or Flop
Working with regional chefs, MVC Collections Manager Renee Tallent attempts to recreate dishes from recipes in the Museum of Ventura County’s archives. Go on a journey through our county’s history to see if the recipes are a delicious Feast or a disastrous Flop.
“VC 150 Memories” is a community-driven project that aims to celebrate and preserve the cherished memories of residents in Ventura County. Residents are invited to submit their favorite images, which will be featured in a public photo gallery.
