One of a collection of historic buildings that make up the 'Old Town' the museum is worthy of a visit to get a feeling for the history. During our visit there was a young lady in costume sewing in the 'parlour'. Entrance is free.

This is not an original building, but the rebuilt home of James McCoy, a 19th century San Diego politician. It provides an interesting, concise history of the area that includes the Native people and Californios who contributed much to that history and the making of modern San Diego. I recommend it as the starting point for your tour of Old... More
