Just steps from the Beach, the Museum holds countless treasures from the City's past.

The Port Hueneme Historical Society Museum is located at 220 N. Market Street in Port Hueneme. Built in 1925, the building was originally the Bank of Hueneme, then it was the city’s first City Hall. Today, the Museum - listed as Ventura County Landmark No. 32 - houses historical artifacts, photographs and information on the history of the Hueneme area. Famed architect Myron Hunt designed the building, who was also responsible for designing the Bard Mansion, the Huntington Library in San Marino, and the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.

Displays are maintained by the City's Administration & Community Services Department and the Historical Museum Commission.
