Lining the halls of this classic city hall are works of various local artists. A wide variety of artistic styles and mediums are on display. A great place to admire art. Lots of parking, and it is, of course, free!

We spent 30 minutes walking the marble halls and reading about the City Hall and its history. If it is a hot day this would be a place to cool off and there are public restrooms available.

The Ventura City Hall is an exceptionally attractive building commanding the top of California Street. Very inviting staff let us enjoy the lovely interior with its woodwork, skylights and other fixtures. A beautiful place.

The City Hall id over 100 years old and has been totally renovated. It was originally the Ventura County Government Center, which is why it is large and very impressive for a City of 100,000. Worth a visit and enjoy Downtown Ventura

You'd be hard pressed to find a more unique City Hall in the U.S.A. While San Francisco's City Hall evokes the elegance of Paris, Ventura's City Hall blends old world grace with modernity and a respectful nod to the city's mission history(complete with a stunning...More

No. It is only open during normal weekday business hours, as it is the official City Hall.
