“A fun part of our trip”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We went there one evening, and it was very enjoyable! Loved the interactive little tour they did. Very interesting history, fun for kids and people of all ages. They take your picture with an old times backdrop and print it out for you for free. We enjoyed panning for gold. We also loved that they provided a parking lot, considering we had spent about 45 minutes just trying to find parking at the zoo earlier that day. You do learn about the history of Mormon people, but they don't try to convert you.

“Highlight of the trip”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

this place is incredible. So interactive (including photos!). Not "Mormon-y" at all. Very entertaining story told in a way your kids will love. Great history. Free panning for gold. Free photo in old west backdrop. Fun to have in Old Town. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

“A really great, interesting museum for kids and adults alike”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Fun, interactive type of exhibit - never seen this kind before (but don't want to give it away by giving details). A bit heavy on the Mormon religion, as you'd expect, but nothing too overt and they aren't trying to convert you. Great history lesson, especially about what the Mormon people brought to San Diego. So glad we stopped in - free souvenir photo too!

“Cool history!”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

I learned a lot about the history of the settling of San Diego and the Mormon Battalions role in the history. Great story- very informative.
