#2 of 18 in Things to do in Riverside
The Mission Inn Foundation was incorporated in 1976 to assist in the preservation and restoration of the Mission Inn, and originally, to manage the hotel during ownership by the City of Riverside's Redevelopment Agency. The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa is now privately owned by Duane and Kelly Roberts, and the Foundation has a unique role of operating a non-profit museum within a for-profit hotel. The Mission Inn Museum, operated by the Mission Inn Foundation, was opened in 1993, simultaneous with the reopening of the Mission Inn after seven years of extensive renovations. In addition to the museum, the Mission Inn Foundation interprets the history and significance of the Mission Inn through daily hotel tours, monthly public programs and special events, the Hands On History educational initiative, and the continued stewardship of the hotel's expansive art, artifact, and archival collections.

  • Pretty cool, has a little shop that's way over priced but what else do you expect lol! The museum is cool, shows you a lot of historical pictures and people who have visited!
  • Some rooms are a bit musty. Great place to visit for the day. Beautiful gardens. The lights at Christmas are spectacular, although the area can get a bit crowded at night.
  • Very informative. Set up of photos and info was easily understood and navigated. They have an old item on display monthly, " what is it?", fill out card with your guess of what the item is and win $50 gift card. Unique items in gift shop pertaining to Riverside and area citrus history.
  • Riverside is a great place to visit during the holidays. Mission Inn is beautifully decorated.
  • Mission Inn is a Riverside treasure, having enjoyed the adventure of exploring this iconic and historic site for 40 years. Each time is a tour filled with wonderment; you will want to spend a few hours walking up and down this maze-like architectural achievement, and definitely want to stay at this fairly priced hotel and enjoy it's amenities 😁
