Mission Tours

The museum, church and garden are open daily for tours that begin in the Mission gift shop.

Self-guided tour hours are 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM daily (except Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Day) Price: $6.00 (Children under 12 - free admission to the museum).  All children under 18 must be accompanied by adults.  

Docent-led tours are available for groups from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM and must be scheduled at least 2 weeks in advance by contacting the Gift Shop. Cost is $7.00 per person 12 years and older. Self-guided group tours are $6.00 per person 12 years and older ($5.00 for six or more in a group). All group and docent tours must be scheduled at least 2 weeks in advance by contacting the Gift Shop and the Gift Shop staff must have the cell phone number of someone traveling with the group. We accept there may be unavoidable delays in transit. Since our docents are volunteers who are at the mission specifically for scheduled tours, it is critical that the Gift Shop staff is made aware of any delays in arrival.

In the first room of the museum, a history sheet in five languages: English, Spanish, Italian, German, and French is available for visitors.
