This wonderful museum has a broad range of topics and exhibits tucked into a relatively small space.  

During our visit the Museum was showing a traveling collection of watercolor art.  They also have a standing collection of Ventura historical artifacts and an outdoor exhibit of farm implements. 

Of special interest is the unique collection of 18th century miniature figurines created by Ojai artist George Stuart.
