The Albinger Archaeological Museum is open to the public Friday—Sunday from 11 AM—4 PM and is located across the street from the Museum of Ventura County. Admission is always free. The Albinger Archaeological Museum was once the home to five different cultures spanning 3,500 years of history, including Chinese immigrants—the subject of this artifact examination.
Local archaeologist John Foster participated in the excavation of the Albinger site in the 1970s, and he will join us on Saturday, January 25, 2020 from 3—4PM to interpret the story of how the site was excavated and what the artifacts and ruins reveled about the ancient and more recent cultures of Ventura County. Here, John briefly discusses a few of the Native Chumash artifacts that were excavated at the site.
Join us at the Albinger Archaeological Museum Friday, January 24, 2020 — Sunday, January 26, 2020 from 11AM—4PM as we dig through the layers of the past with music, dance, crafts, and storytelling to honor the diversity of the cultures who have lived here and left their mark on history. This event is free to attend and open to the public.
