An adobe mansion that is beautifully restored and the history is very interesting. Think that history buffs and children studying this topic would really enjoy this house.

We visited the Estudillo house, which is located in the old town in San Diego. We learnt that the house was built in 1827 and belonged to one of the state's most distinguished 19th century families. Estudillo house Today, Estudillo house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
We saw that the house has been restored, including the beautiful garden and twelve rooms (bedrooms, living room, dining room…). On top of the roof, we also saw a was a turret, where the Estudillo family watched the fiestas on the plaza!

Great museum showing how the original adobe mansion, was the heart of social & religious activities during the Mexican period in the 1800s. Each room has beautiful displays and descriptions explaining the rooms use etc., certainly takes you back in time. Well worth a visit if you are in Old Town.

Casa De Estudillo is one of the bigger museums in the park. It's an older hacienda style building with a nice courtyard. Staff in costume are there to greet you. It gives you an idea how life was back then. Each room of the house have nice exhibits. This museum takes a little longer to go through than most in the park, but of course there is no rush. It's also included if you take the walking tour, but they don't take you in the rooms. As with the rest of the park, Casa De Estudillo is worth checking out.

One of the largest museums here. Interesting to see that the hacienda was shaped in a rectangle. And each room had a different purpose. If you were the parents, you had to Leave your room, go across the patio, then eat in the dining room. There were 2 docents here and one got a little rude with me when explaining how life was then. She said, "Well, there wasn't a super market back then, so they had to grow their own food" I am very interested in history and I know that the settlers back then had to plant and have animals to eat. However, I had to overlook that remark because my purpose was to visit this museum to learn of old San Diego history. The museum is still undergoing some renovations, but it is still worthwhile to visti

I whet in with the sole purpose of looking at the house. However, after I entered the courtyard, I spent most of my time looking at the water fountain and the various different plant life. I must admit, I found myself thinking that it would've been awesome living in this place back in the late 1800s.I really liked the vibe that I put off in the solitude of the garden.I think it's worth the stop.

I had the most humiliating experience ever, I will never consider going back. My daughter, mother and I decided to go to Old Town after spending most of the day at the zoo. We decided to visit the house since the first time we were there it was closed already. We walked in and we were shortly "greeted" by an employee/attendant who asked if we were there for the wedding. I replied no, we just wanted to tour the house. She was EXTREMELY rude and stated "you have to get out!, we're closed for a private event!" She then proceeded to kick us out by waiving her hands signaling to get out. Moreover, she then loudly shut the door as we stepped out. I was so appalled by her lack of courtesy that I was speechless. What happened to common courtesy? A simple, "I'm sorry, were closed at the moment" would have sufficed. I have never in my life been kicked out of a place. I highly recommend this lady receives some training on customer service. This happened on 10/15 at around after 6:00 pm.

We got an interesting brochure about the adobe house built in 1830. It was so interesting to see how simple it was built. It is difficult to imagine living in that type of home. It is worth a visit. It doesn't take more than an hour.

This museum is a house that you can walk through and see how they lived. The rooms are decorated in authentic decor of their day. Interesting to see how different life was. A beautiful property.
