We want to invite you to explore our online content as we believe museums have the power to create unity on not just social or political levels but also locally. We want to provide a sense of community and place by celebrating our collective heritage. See social links below.

Yoga at Cooper Molera Thanks to Om Studio and Sweet Heat Yoga for participating with outdoor classes here at Cooper Molera. You can reach out to them below to see their schedules.
|Please join us every weekday at 4:00 for an hour of yoga done at this gorgeous historic adobe in Old Town Monterey. The setting is rustic and private, sheltered by walls and gardens. The weather is generally sunny here in the afternoons so it’s a great way to get out of the fog, breathe in some fresh air and synthesize some vitamin D! We will be meeting every Monday through Friday for the remainder of September. See you under the walnut tree! Click on the logo to see the upcoming schedule.|
