General Tours


Bring the whole family and plan on spending at least an hour touring Rancho Camulos! Docent-led tours give visitors an opportunity to experience Rancho Camulos. You will see the main adobe built in 1853, the chapel, the winery, the schoolhouse and our beautiful rose garden and  grounds. Learn about the early Californio days of the del Valle family and the present-day owners of the 1800 acre ranch, the Rubels.  Hear about Helen Hunt Jackson and her novel Ramona that made Camulos the “Home of Ramona” and changed California forever. Rancho Camulos is the one of the only Mexican land grant ranchos in California that is open to the public and still preserved in its original rural environment.  The site contains 15 historic structures and is Ventura County’s only NATIONAL HISTORIC LANDMARK.

Regular Museum hours for public tours are on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Winter schedule: Docent-led tours are available by appointment only. Request via email,

Regular tour schedule resumes January 26, 2020.

Suggested donation for a docent guided tour is $5.00 for adults / $3.00 for children.
