Visit The Chumash Indian Museum in Thousand Oaks! It is awesome! I highly recommend visiting this museum! This museum has both indoor and outdoor parts. I live just minutes away from here and I’ve visited the Chumash Indian Museum many times!

A fun little museum with a cute museum. Easy to find, be sure you check hours before you go. A good little hike and there is a cave.
