Mission San Juan Capistrano: History Comes Alive
Mission San Juan Capistrano showcases historic and religious artifacts, 18th-20th century paintings, and an interpretive room dedicated to Native American art. In the South Wing Padres Quarters, the Mission features a permanent collection of artifacts belonging to the padres who lived there in the 18th century, highlighting the historical significance of the mission system and the role of the padres in establishing what became the state of California. This exhibit will reinforce many of the lessons outlined in the California fourth grade curriculum by providing visuals—paintings, artifacts, photographs, and other mediums—to illustrate this rich and dynamic history. The permanent collection also displays a group of landscape and portrait paintings, as well as a stunning series of religious artifacts such as chalices, vestments, and tabernacles.
Explore lush gardens, koi-filled fountains, museum rooms, original adobe buildings and the Ruins of the Great Stone Church, home to the world-famous swallows. This peaceful oasis provides a wealth of photo opportunities and in-depth information about the history of the mission and the local area. Enhance your visit with their new multi-language audio tour available in English, Spanish, French and German, offered free with admission. The mission is conveniently located halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego, close to the freeway and airport and within walking distance from the train depot.
Any Mon-Fri Through Nov 18, 2019 (2:00pm-5:00pm) | $4 - $5
