From one-room schoolhouses to the formation of school districts, visitors of all ages will enjoy the stories of achievement, discipline and friendship explored through “Back to School,” the Museum of Ventura County’s newest exhibit, opening Aug. 15. Visitors will experience how schooling has changed over the last 100 years, as well as a record of the schools that have come and gone, through stories, objects and photographs, many provided from the community, others selected from the Museum’s own collection of educational artifacts, as well as loaned objects including uniforms, trophies, prizes, photographs and report cards. The exhibit runs through September 10.
