Great local place to learn and explore for any age individual to get info on local natives. Get indoor and outdoor space. Low key. Worth the time.

Really small museum with few exhibits, good information on the Chumash tribe. The outdoor village is awesome, and the hiking trail behind the museum is a must.

I would say that this is more of an adult attraction. Although the museum does a lot of school trip events, I cannot see the appeal.

The 'museum' is basically a one room diorama and the outdoor pieces are underwhelming.

Now adults will get more just but the whole place is not very engaging.

A saving grace is that the museum is situated in a lovely park area if you are up for a nice stroll. The park is well shaded as opposed to the local hill walks so it is nice on a hot, sunny day.

Went to go hiking in the area and saw this small museum. I can spend hours in a place just reading and wandering around. It is a nice place to cool down after a hot afternoon of hiking.

I have been to this museum several times. Frequently as a learning expierence. The enterior of the museum offes artifacts of the Chumash Indians...the previous inhabitants of the area. There are vast grounds to wander around offering remnants of a long gone Chumash village. There are picnic tables and benches outside. A small gift shop inside. It's a great place to spend a few hours, alone or with the family.
