I liked the fact that it opens at 9:00 and the rest of Old Town opens at 10:00. We had a personal tour and ire was very interesting. The other museums were also great.

We saw this site while on our trolley tour and also while driving through Old Town San Diego, but we did not go inside. It is very convenient for those visiting Old Town, with free parking nearby, and if we had more time we would have enjoyed seeing more of it.

We went on the advice of trip advisor, and at first thought it would be very interesting, but as it went on we realized that it was really just a long Mormon sermon about how their prayers were answered. If I want a sermon I'll go to church

Anybody who is interested in knowing the Mormon battalion, then this is the best place. Not only is there ample information of the same but the place also excels in their presentation. So along with revisiting the history, you will have fun, lots of information and an enjoyable experience altogether.

Unexpected site in (Downtown) Old Town San Diego. It is staffed by Mormons who proudly relate the story of the battalion and its trek to San Diego from Utah. Very recent history when you think about it, but this is a young region for American settlement anyway.

This is very revealing about the history and zealotry of the Mormans. Also interesting how they helped shape the history of San Diego.

Amazing architecture that stands out over the city. You can't resist taking  photos and sharing them because there are few structures and landscapes that flow so nicely. Staffers are friendly and accommodating and pleased to offer tours.

Interesting stories about the building of the road from the east to San Diego. Uplifting. Interactive.
