The Ventura Visitor Center is Open!

By Visit Ventura


Happy news, the Ventura Visitors Center is now open — we are so glad to be able help our guests and visitors again! We’ll be open to the public, Wednesday through Sunday from 10 am to 3 pm: and closed to the public, for the moment, on Mondays and Tuesdays. But our online store is open 24/7 — and we are offering curbside purchase pickup, Wednesday through Sunday, again from 10 am to 3 pm.

But it remains a different world. And here in Ventura, our town — and our Visitors Center — is doing its best to embrace caution, and always keep safety — for our visitors, our residents, our staff and our volunteers — front and center.

With safety in mind, a few things you should know. We are reopening using the approved Prevention Plan we submitted to the County of Ventura. It’s a lot of details — all of them oriented toward your safety — but the simple version is this. On our end, we’ll be frequently cleaning all high touch surfaces. We’ll be wearing masks and keeping a six foot distance between staff, volunteers and visitors. We’ll also be offering curbside service. Just call us at (805) 641-1400 and we’ll bring maps & brochures out to your car.

How can you help us on your end? Please wear a mask when you come into the Center (we also sell masks with our unique Ventura ambigram). Please use the hand sanitizer we’re providing at the front door and at the front desk. Please keep 6 feet away from others. And please consider not bringing everyone in your party into the Center. We’re only allowing eight to ten visitors in the Center at a time.

None of this is meant to sound unwelcoming. In fact, it’s just the opposite. We have always cared deeply about our visitors — now we just have to indulge in a little extra care.

Again, if you have questions please call 805-641-1400 or email — helpful answers are what we do.

And last, but not least, thank you for your kind understanding and support — and doing your part to make things better for everyone. We are all in this together.

The Ventura Visitors Center is located at 101 South California Street in Ventura’s Historic Downtown Cultural District.
