We go to the Safari Park quite often, and one weekend we dropped in here. There was a re-enactment and a very good briefing. This was the sharpest actual battle between the Californios and the American army, and it was essentially a draw. Great descriptions...More

This is a great little museum to stop at for an hour or so. One of the last battle sites in the Spanish American War. The museum is small but well worth a visit, some exhibits, a short movie and well displayed literature. The docent...More

Lovely setting right off the road to the Wild Animal Park. Friendly, helpful docents. Tons of California's history, set in a beautifully preserved lication. This is how California used to look.

Nice little museum that describes the setting of the Mexican-American battle in the valley. No admission fee. There is a hiking loop up the mountain, which provides a spectacular view.

This museum is right along the highway on SR78. Free admission. Plenty of parking. It is full of history of the area, mainly the Battle of San Pasqual. Re-enactments take place annually in early December. The 'battle' itself is spectacular. Displays and demonstrations are set...More

This little park commemorating a forgotten battle in a forgotten war is packed with fantastic displays, a great panoramic window of the battlefield. I've rarely seen such a well-done "small event" museum - tells the story in a balanced, compelling way, and the staff is...More
