Santa Paula Art Museum
The Santa Paula Art Museum is located in the historic Limoneira Building at 117 North Tenth Street in downtown Santa Paula. The museum features rotating exhibits of art displayed in a wonderfully inviting setting. In 2010 the historic landmark was renovated and reopened as the Santa Paula Art Museum. The classic two-story structure was designed by the famed local architect Roy Wilson, Sr. and built to accommodate the offices of the Limoneira Company in the early 1920s. The architectural details of the exterior of the building hint at the interior’s handsome paneling, soaring windows and spectacular atrium. Hours are Wednesday-Saturday 10am to 4pm and Sunday from 12pm to 4pm. Admission prices are $4 adults, $3 seniors and students are always free. The museum also features a wonderful gift shop which includes work by local artists.
The Santa Paula Art museum is next to the established City of Santa Paula’s California Oil Museum, located in the original Victorian headquarters of the Union Oil Company of California which was founded here in 1890. The museum site faces scenic highway 150 and is one block from the intersection with Main Street. Additionally, the location is within walking distance of the Aviation Museum of Santa Paula, the restored vintage train depot, and the Museum of Ventura County’s Agriculture Museum located at the old mill.
