Museum of Ventura County Participates in Smithsonian magazine’s Museum Day 2009

The Museum of Ventura County is again participating in the fifth annual Museum Day, presented by Smithsonian magazine, on Saturday, September 26. While the Museum of Ventura County already has free admission in its present temporary location at 89 South California Street in Ventura, all of the expected 1,000 participating museums and cultural institutions with entry fees will provide free access that day if you present a downloaded Museum Day Admission Card (providing access for two people), found at Links and listings of participating museums and cultural institutions can also be found at the Smithsonian site.

Museum Day is intended to emulate the free admission policy of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., the world's most visited museum and research complexes. Smithsonian magazine is affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution.

Museum of Ventura County is now featuring two new exhibits, Wearing Our Stories: Costume and Cultural Identity in the Latino Community, and Immigration to Integration: The Art of Cristian Gheorghiu. For more information, go to
