Museum Offers Day Trips to LACMA and Lotusland

Enjoy day tripping, but not the driving? Consider a Museum of Ventura County motor coach trip this summer. The first, on Tuesday, June 3, explores the newly opened Broad Contemporary Art Museum at Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), and the other on Wednesday, July 16, tours the exotic gardens of Lotusland in Montecito. Both day trips originate in Ventura.

The Los Angeles trip on June 3 includes a one-hour docent led tour of the Broad Contemporary Art Museum, and incorporates time to plan your own lunch and explore LACMA’s other exhibitions and galleries. The cost is $45.00 for museum members, $55.00 for non-members.

The trip to Lotusland in Montecito on July 16 includes a guided tour of the exotic gardens at the 37-acre estate of the late Madame Ganna Walska. A picnic lunch at nearby Manning Park is included. Cost is $65 for museum members, $75 for non-members.

Space for both trips is limited. For further information, including start and return times, and to make reservations, call Jennifer Mackie @ 805-641-1876 ext. 305.
