Take the tour.

Take the $5.00 tour and you will learn a lot about the Adobe construction. The early history of California and the richest person in the United States at the time.

Take the walking tour that includes the Cooper-Molera Adobe. You will be very happy you did! Perhaps not a choice if you have young children who will tire of such recreation easily. Do all of the historical adobe tours you can fit in. Well worth it!

Many people do not know about the Californio days which were between the mission days and California statehood. Visiting this Adobe will give insights to this time.

This beautifully preserved home was fun to walk through. Most of the furnishings are original to the Cooper family. A nice piece of Monterey history.

Like many of the historical sites in Monterey area, it's real and not fancied up to look more cute...It's a real building that dates back to early Monterey and gives an idea of what Monterey looked like.

My teenage children and I visited the museum on the fourth and found the experience of few typical museum signs and artifacts and gardens with no description. Tours of the house could only be taken when supervised and lasted about 45 minutes. Overall the grounds were beautiful as well as the main house and on the particular day of my... More

Although California History is a bit later than the history of the rest of the country, Monterey was California's first Capitol. This site not only contains the Museum Store for the Monterey State Historic Park but includes a walled garden encompassing nearly an acre in size, with plantings dating fro the 1860s. The historical exhibit in Spear Warehouse is definitely... More

On a weekday in May, not too many people happened by, but it is an interesting place to view for a flavor of old California life. Monterey has emblems marking a walk through the historic adobes and buildings and this was one of the highlights of the walk. Visit their garden and many of the others too.
