Museum of Jesuit Missions



REVIEW

The museum was inaugurated in December 1973 with the objective of making known the history of the missions of California, from the discovery of America to the conquest of Mexico. It is located in an 18th century Jesuit convent. In time, the temple belonged to Franciscans and later on to Dominicans. It houses and displays around 300 pieces among archaeological remains, paintings, 17th and 18th century’s sacred sculptures, bells, censer, ancient documents like the historic Catechism printed in 1681 and the Ecclesiastical Comment Book of 1701. It stands out a bell that fell into the ocean in 1875 and a hundred years later was entangled in fish nets.
