Our Expansion Project
Preliminary requirements of the City of Camarillo have begun with the recent soil testing on the property. 50' deep holes were dug to retrieve soil samples that will determine if any seismic activity has taken place. These samples will be evaluated by the City to determine feasibility to expand on the site.
The cost for design, construction and furnishing the new Museum is budgeted for $1 million. To expand will depend on your generosity. Please join us and watch our expansion fund grow and our building rise.
