This was a wonderful way to learn how this Battalion helped build up the original San Diego during the Mexican American War.
It is the most high tech historic site on the west coast.

I expected this place to be very bland like a not so great museum but boy was i wrong. This is a very interactive tour and the tour guides (sisters/elders) are excellent at re-enacting the experience. It is like being part of a harry potter movie as the pictures on the walls speak to you and move around. You even get to pan for gold and dress up in pioneer clothing for pictures. They also include a picture with your family with a frontier background. Best of all is that it is all FREE.

An electronic presentation of the history of the Mexican American War that was both entertaining and informative. The tour guides were friendly and not in your face. I loved it!

There needs to be a program in place for those who are familiar with the history to see the site without the whole tour. We were hoping for a quick visit before dinner but found the only option was a 45 minute tour. Hungry tummies won out so we left. I was hoping to see it again, having been there some years previously and also having studied Mormon history.
Disappointment.
