Free info on where to go and what to do to in the Ojai Valley
Semi-permanent exhibits highlight the evolution of the valley. Learn about the Chumash culture, rancho period, artists, local businesses and more. Step inside our Sespe Wilderness diorama to get a feel for the backcountry. We also have a sculpture garden in our front courtyard plus a large 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 building is on the National Register of Historic Places.
