I'm a bit biased being on the Board of a local museum in Ojai. I found the Bailey House, buildings, grounds and Duke surfboard display quite interesting. The display on Duke, the King of surfboarding, with his board, a nearby local boat, both from early 1900's were quite informative. The grounds were lovely. The home with its collection of Cook era displays and Bailey original artwork were amazing and educating. To see how the home had expanded over its life was interesting as you learn how life molded itsself to its existence over the years. Also, it is right on the way to Iao Valley so no special trip needed. Please support your local museums, they are staffed by history loving volunteers who are more than happy to answer questions, as were the three folks at Bailey House. Mahalo.
