Nice little historical museum that tells the story of Camarillo. Many items donated by families that have resided in the Camarillo area for generations. The garden and gazebo are worth a look and a walk.

A genuine, volunteer operated repository of local history of Camarillo's agricultural past and present. Great for kids to see what every day life was in the 19th and early 20th centuries . Includes a garden of indigenous plants. Call for operating hours.

Good history of land grants, railroads, and early Ranchos. The...More
