Carmel Mission Basilica

3080 Rio Rd, Carmel, CA 93923

Carmel Mission also has four museum galleries that give insight into the history of both the Monterey Peninsula and all of the California Missions. The Harry Downie Museum shows the history of the Carmel Mission's restoration. Mission San Carlos Borromeo's Munras Family Heritage Museum gives the history of one prominent family interwoven with the history of the Peninsula. The Jo Mora Chapel Gallery has ever-changing art exhibits, but its centerpiece is the Mora-sculpted Serra Memorial Cenotaph. The Convento Museum shows visitors what Carmel Mission was like during different eras through interpretive displays, and allows them to see the cell where Junipero Serra lived and died.

The museum is open Wednesday and Thursday from 10am to 4pm, Friday and Saturday from 10am to 5pm, and Sundays from 11:30am to 5pm. Admission to the grounds and mission is $10 for adults, $7 for seniors, $5 for children, and children under 6 are admitted for free. All funds go to mission restoration projects. The Museum is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Visit the Carmel Mission online store.
