“Very Informative”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Tour was great. They take you in rooms that are not accessible to the general public. Learning about the history of the hotel was very interesting.

“Interesting museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

We happened to be walking around and found the museum. There was even a gentleman who was there and told us a story about some of the paintings. A nice find when you are looking for something to do.

“Take the tour of the Mission Inn!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The mission Inn holds many secrets-do not miss the tour given by the little museum. We were the only ones on the tour and were lucky enough to get the long version. See the magnificent chapel with Tiffany windows and glorious gold saturated Retabla (the wall behind the altar) from Mexico circa 18th century . The Oriental room and garden-eclectic and so beautiful. The Spanish art gallery contains rare paintings of the missions before they were restored and lots of other art hung salon style. Learn about the history of the hotel, its owners and something about the town of Riverside. Probably not so good for small kids. 13 dollars for adults, usually given 3 times a day. In the summer look out for the night time tours which include a peek at various guest rooms. The little museum is really interesting and has a great gift shop.
