“Coming along nicely”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

Small, but very well done museum and grounds. Nice area for walk around grounds with good replica areas. Inside museum is small but informative. Nice events such as Cinco de Mayo paseo with pets dressed in period costume along with owners.

“History comes alive”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

A very good restoration of a Spanish Mission and Village. You can live its history by walking through the many recreated buildings. Museum staff members in period costumes give explanations and demonstrations of what life was like at the Mission. Our 8 year old grandson enjoyed his visit. He especially enjoyed the blacksmith demonstration.
