Carnegie Art Museum, Oxnard

3.9
The Carnegie Art Museum is a public art museum owned by the City of Oxnard, California in the building originally occupied by the Oxnard Public Library. The Neo-Classical building, located adjacent to Oxnard's Plaza Park, opened in 1907 as the Oxnard Public Library and was converted into an art museum in 1986. In July 1971, it became the first building in Ventura County and the first Carnegie library in California to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

In 2019 the city considered laying off the employees at the museum and at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center and shuttering both facilities.

  • Super quaint art museum. It's been around for ages and we heard that it might be closed due to budget cuts so had to go again for it closes. It's a good 20-30min walk through. Loved the artwork and how quiet it is.
  • There was a lot of really cool art in this place and I liked the history of the building...you git to go through it if you have never been before
