Very interesting presentation about the early days of San Diego and the part the Mormons played in getting it started.

Soon good California history that is very interesting and not as religious as I thought it was going to be. Well worth a visit.

One of the most educational things to see in Old Town. The narrated presentation makes you feel like you were back in the 1840's. The place is a little off the beaten path but well worth seeing if your interested in California history.

This place was just okay. I don’t think it is the original battalion site. But what we say was cool. We took just a quick 20 min tour just to check out the place. But there is an official tour every 15 mins which lasts...More

We thought we were visiting a regular museum. It was more like an interactive tour through history. The people were so nice. The girls leading our tour were very enthusiastic. There isn't a charge. We tried to give them some money but they would not...More
