Thank you for your interest in joining the Channel Islands Maritime Museum’s staff!

The Museum has an extensive and world-class maritime art collection, featuring 17th century Dutch and Flemish masters such as Willem van de Velde and Bonaventura Peeters, 18th century British artists Edward Cooke and Robert Salmon to noted modern day artists John Stobart, David Thimgan and Thomas Hoyne. Ship models trace more that 3000 years of maritime history, from ancient Egyptian reed boats and tomols used by local Chumash to modern day car carriers. The Museum houses one of the largest collections of antique Prisoner of War sailing ship models on display in the United States. These models, including eight rare bone models, were made by French prisoners of the British during the Napoleonic Wars. In addition, the Museum exhibits the entire life’s work of Ed Marple, one of America’s foremost ship model builders. Other exhibits on whaling, sailor’s arts, navigational instruments and the history of the Channel Islands Harbor and The Port of Hueneme round out the permanent collection. Special topical and featured guest artist exhibitions are presented on an ongoing basis.
