THANK YOU for keeping MVC FREE for ALL

THANK YOU for keeping MVC FREE FOR ALL for another year!

Thanks to the generosity of our community, the Museum of Ventura County can continue to offer free admission in 2023.

Providing free admission gives our entire Ventura County community access to culturally significant activities, events, art, and historical artifacts. Now more than ever, community connection is something to cherish.

Programming at your Museum of Ventura County is made possible by sponsors and supporters just like you.

Thank you for making our Giving Tuesday such a success.

OPEN THURSDAY-SUNDAY FROM 11AM TO 5PM

Admission is free throughout 2022 for both The Museum of Ventura County and the Agriculture Museum.
