FUTURE PROJECTS

Founded in 1771, the Mission’s structures are in critical need of repair and restoration. Some of the walls are over 200-years-old and are fundamental to the structural integrity and the architectural character of the Mission.

The next project will address the Northeast Quadrant of the Mission, which includes the museums and front entrance. The goal is to enhance the museum experience by telling the story of the Alta California Missions and Carmel-by-the-Sea, and their significant impact on California’s history through improved museum displays, better descriptive information, and state-of-the-art technology. Planned are seismic retrofits, infrastructure upgrades, and facility and courtyard improvements for better visitor traffic flow.

The Carmel Mission Foundation continues the legacy of individual and community commitment to the historical restoration and preservation of the Carmel Mission, which began in 1883.
