A Message From Susan O’Brien – Channel Islands Maritime Museum Board President
The Channel Islands Maritime Museum is located waterside, overlooking Ventura County’s beautiful Channel Islands Harbor. The Museum offers a unique collection of exhibits that define the best in maritime art, ship models, history of our local Channel Islands and wildlife, our neighbor the Port of Hueneme and many other nautical collections. We also host an active educational school program and a year-round calendar of special events, festivals, rotating exhibits and a monthly Speaker Series.
We invite the community, as well as those visiting, to enjoy all the Museum has to offer whether in person or virtually. We can customize tours for school groups, clubs, individuals and families and offer our upper deck for private gatherings. Our gift Shop, Bluefin Gifts, is open during museum hours and by appointment and offers local and regional nautical wares, gifts, and an extensive collection of books. We also have a library that is available to members. We encourage you join as a member, visit often and to embrace the many offerings the Channel Islands Maritime Museum offers to our community.
