Museum of Ventura County announces changes in admission policy

The Museum of Ventura County extends heartfelt gratitude to our vibrant community for its unwavering generosity, allowing us to offer free admission throughout 2023. As we look ahead to the new year, the Museum of Ventura County, Downtown Ventura location, will undergo a transition in its admission policy beginning February 1, 2024. The grant that has sustained free admission will conclude, necessitating a shift to a sustainable funding model.

Starting February 1, 2024, the Museum of Ventura County, Downtown Ventura, will implement the following admission fees: • $10 for adults • $5 for students & seniors • Free for individuals under 18 years old This change marks a new chapter for our Downtown Ventura location. We understand the importance of making cultural experiences accessible to all, and to that end, we invite you to consider becoming a member of the Museum of Ventura County. Membership not only grants you free admission to all Museum locations, but also provides exclusive access to a range of programs and events.
