Nancy Chappell, chair of the museum’s board, said Thursday that due to the pandemic, the nonprofit has endured extensive revenue losses primarily because it could no longer hold fundraising events.

Unless the museum receives at least $250,000 in donations at once, it will close June 19, Chappell said. A $250,000 infusion would cover the museum’s operating budget for a year, she said.

“Without significant financial support from the community and major private benefactors… impending closure is unfortunately the only course forward,” she said.

The museum was established in 2009 and began exhibits in 2016 when it moved into a former Taco Bell building in downtown Thousand Oaks owned by the city.
