  • Charming, heartfelt exhibits of worthy stuff like incl. local heroes, Ojai based products and art, and one fun scene with actual taxidermied animals. A mice way to spend an hour or two. (Note: street parking, no lot.)

Though it was “suggested”, one would feel pressured to pay when the person asks once you come in, And there wasn’t anyone else in the museum. It was a tiny museum with a small section of the history of Ojai and a special exhibit of architecture.
