Mormon Battalion Historic Site, San Diego Reviews

  • This was such a fun experience! I was told before I visited San Diego I absolutely has to visit this historical site and they were right. There's a fantastic tour and presentation explaining the history behind the Mormon Battalion, commissioned by the U.S. government in the 1800's. The presentation is very well put together and is enjoyable for adults and kids alike. One does not need to have any interest in the Mormon church to enjoy visiting.

  • Really interesting historical aspect of San Diego (and US history). The facilities are really nice (bathrooms are super clean and great AC for a hot day). They take you through a semi augmented reality experience of what it would be like to go back in time and be a part of the US army as a battalion member. You also can get a free black and white picture (see ours in the pictures I uploaded) to make you look like the old time period. My wife and I had fun. It’s super interesting to see how Mormons we’re a part of the founding of San Diego. Also, you can pan for gold! If you’re lucky, you might find some (it’s iron pyrite aka fools gold), but it’s still fun to get your hands wet and pretend. Fun for kids. They let us keep one piece. If you don’t mind them putting in a little pitch for their belief in Jesus, it is really worth while. They aren’t pushy at all, but if you have questions about spirituality, religion or Mormons, they’ll be more than happy to answer 😉. Oh there is also a great lookout with binoculars. They have really put some thought into this place.

  • Really cool tour... the interactive elements engage you during the tour. It brings some humor while teaching about historical facts surrounding the Mormons. Very insightful and they ask for a donation after so you can take the tour, and if you enjoy it, you can donate as much or as little as you feel it's warranted.

  • Our family was visiting from out of town. Friendly guides walk you through re-enactments, viewed on screen, of actual LDS history. Our boys loved it. One of our boys was chosen to dress up like the soldiers did back then. At the end of the tour, we were able to have an 'old fashioned' looking picture taken of our family. Then, we were able to 'mine and sift' for fool's gold. Each of our boys were able to keep one piece. Please like and share if you found this information useful. 😁

  • My family and I really enjoyed visiting this historic site. We are LDS (Mormon) and are familiar with much of the history of the Mormon Battalion and really enjoyed coming here. They have done a great job making the presentation quality and enjoyable. I was impressed. My kids especially enjoyed panning for (fake) gold at the end.
