Cooper Molera Adobe museum is still closed following Monterey County’s order to close museums to slow the spread of COVID-19. Please read more below on how you can support Cooper Molera during the pandemic.
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.
|Wishing all a Happy Holiday and Happy New Year|
|In The Garden|
Our gardens are open for visitation 7am-4pm, entrance is through the Polk street gates. Face masks are required, please follow local and state guidelines for social distancing and stay at least 6 feet apart from others, and we recommend using our sanitation stations placed at our Polk and Munras gates.
We encourage you to support Alta Bakery with take-out orders and The Barns at Cooper Molera with micro wedding and elopement ceremonies, and with our outdoor, socially distant yoga classes with Om Studios and Union Yoga.
As always, we want to say thank you to The Historic Garden League who help keep our gardens beautiful. Please consider donating to their cause at historicgardenleague.org. They are a non-profit foundation formed to restore, support and preserve the historic gardens of this area and to offer the opportunity to gain knowledge and appreciation of gardening.
