Mormon Battalion Historic Site Reviews & Ratings
Great place to learn of faith filled examples and great history of old town San Diego. My family loves to stop here whenever we visit. I always feel the peace and love that the Lord has for me. My appreciation for the pioneers grows every time I visit this site. I always learn something new that will direct my life with celestial guidance.
This is a wonderful stop on your vacation to Southern California. The missionaries are kind, the atmosphere is enjoyable and the tour is very educational. Interactive for kids and a great place to cool off from the heat. It is also FREE! There is a free souvenir picture as well. I think everyone should make a stop at the Mormon Battalion Historic Site at least once! :)
I absolutely loved it here! The sister missionaries are so so SO kind and wonderful! My dad brought me here for my birthday and it was the best gift I could ask for. There’s a really special feeling you get when you’re there!! I would highly recommend coming here and learning more about the gospel of Jesus Christ!!
We were expecting a standard walk and look museum, but this 30-40 minute experience was so much more than that! It was interactive, engaging, and inspiring. Perfect for families with kids as well. Loved it.
This story is beautifully told and was quirky fun. Special thanks to the missionaries keeping the story alive. We loved the interaction. My only suggestion is the pre movie was the same info so by the end told the tour we hear a few parts 2 or 3 times. Every rooms was full of life and created very well. Again thanks so much for the time and effort into helping bring it to life for my family.
