Legacy: Krishnamurti and Ojai
Opening Reception during 3rd Friday on November 15th. This exhibit looks at the sage, and even more, at his lasting impact on the Ojai Valley.
Semi-permanent exhibits highlight the evolution of the valley. Learn about the Chumash culture, artists, local businesses and more. We also have a large sculpture in our front courtyard plus a mosaic and Chumash garden behind the museum. We're the perfect place to start, or expand, your knowledge of the valley.
The museum is housed in the former St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church. The beautiful 100 year old building is on the National Register of Historic Places.
Permanently on view is a large painting by Jessie Arms Botke. It was originally part of a mural at the El Roblar Hotel.
Artwork by James Petrucci. This mini exhibit includes work in the permanent collections of the Museum, and the City of Ojai.
Check out our Sespe Wilderness Diorama. It's a favorite with families. How many birds and animals can you find?
Make sure to visit the Chumash Interpretive Garden behind the museum. You'll find many plants important to the local Chumash community. As with any garden, it's constantly changing.
Our rotating gallery changes quarterly. Here's a glimpse at a few of our past exhibitions.
