The Mission Inn Foundation offers a 75-minute walking tour led by trained docents on the art, architecture, and history of the Mission Inn. This is your opportunity to see parts of the National Historic Landmark that are inaccessible to the general public based on hotel availability. Reservations are highly recommended as we only take a limited number of guests per tour. Tours are $13 for adults and senior citizens, children 11 years old and under are free with a paying adult. Please call the Museum at (951) 788-9556 during regular business hours for available tour times and reservations. For most of the year, payment is not required to hold the reservation.

During Festival of Lights, starting the Friday after Thanksgiving, and running through the first week of January, tours are $17 per person. Payment is required at the time of reservation and is nonrefundable for Festival of Lights tours.
