A Center for Everyone
The People of This Land
The Chumash Indian Museum is a historical site and living history center. This museum is dedicated to restoring and preserving an awareness of the Chumash people and their historical, cultural, material and present-day influence, as well as the natural environment and historical significance of this site. Through exhibits, events, and educational programs, the Chumash Indian Museum serves as a gathering place for a partnership with the native and non-native communities connecting the past with the present to continue our shared future.
The museum grounds were damaged during the 2018 Woolsey fire. We are collecting donations to help cover the cost of repair. Please visit our GoFundMe for details on what was damaged and how your money can help. 

Due to the damage from the fire, many of our large oak trees have become unstable and hazardous. Conejo Recreation and Parks District have issued a trail closure for all of the trails on the museum property. Please respect our trail closures as it gives CRPD room to work on stabilizing the trees along the trail and ensuring public safety.
