Re-opening of Channel Islands Maritime Museum has been postponed

Oxnard, CA – The Channel Islands Maritime Museum was slated to re-open its doors this Saturday, July 4th. At this time and with an abundance of caution the decision has been made to postpone re-opening to a later date, which has yet to be determined. An opening will be determined once the outbreak of Covid-19 has been better contained and the environment is safer for volunteers, guests, and staff. The museum staff is closely monitoring recent data showing COVID-19 activity increasing in the community, as it is statewide and throughout the country. 

Based on the State of CA guidelines and the sharp rise in community spread and hospitalizations, it does not make sense at this time to open the museum which could further accelerate community transmission. Trends will be monitored and evaluated daily by the museum staff.

The next virtual Speaker Series event will be July 15th at 7:00 PM with historian Mark Frees on “Rum Runners: How Prohibition Changed Ventura County” please visit cimmvc.org to access the link.
