Small but informative museum about history of Coronado. People at desk are very knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions about what to do. Also lots of brochures, maps, etc. and a small gift shop.

This place is a very cool start to visit Coronado. It had displays from the history of the Island. I also really liked the exhibit dedicated to Admiral Stockdale. I didn't check it out, but you could also pick up tour brochures and book some tours. No charge to see museum and certainly a nice 30 minutes to get acquainted... More

Will always be satisfied when visiting. Many outdoor's events, and looking at the boats coming in, and going out. Visited in 2009, 2012. My dates are not in your travel requests.

Got excellent information at the kiosk, but I got asked if my husband and I had any time while we were still here....I think they may be also trying to sell timeshares? Were not pushy, but it was kind of odd.

Fun to visit, they have some discounted coupons here for some of the San Diego attraction. Small gift shops with some unique selections at a decent price. The is a small museum inside that is kinda fun to browse and only takes 10 minutes or less.
