As a San Diego native, I've been to this site many times - from school field trips to Sunday afternoons with family. Now 30 years later, I've been back and was disappointed with the condition of the property. Of course the noise level from the freeway below doesn't help either but it's still a San Diego/Mission Valley landmark. After we... 更多
The Presidio and the Junípero Serra Museum, sit in Presidio Park, on a hill overlooking Old Town, the West end of Mission Valley, and Mission Bay; and, they mark and commemorate the first settlement, founded in 1769, of what would become San Diego and the base from which the Spanish would colonize California. The Presidio is a iconic San Diego... 更多
There's just not much left of the first European settlement in what's now the State of California but they've built a nice building to house it. The museum does it's best to explain the indigenous and early Spanish history, along with the accomplishments of Padre Serra who founded the first of the missions along the California coast. It just doesn't... 更多
We went to the Junipero Serra Museum on a Saturday when it was closed. We were not able to actually go inside the building but we were able to walk around the grounds. We were there for about 30 minutes admiring the stunning views of San Diego and the beautiful building. Great Photo location! It was very peaceful and quiet... 更多
Lots of history here. See the museum, take a tour. Peek in to what was Father Serra's modest room. Meander around the grounds among the old trees. Imagine the beauty of California before we covered it with cement. Highly recommend!
This little museum in the Presidio give you a feeling of the early settlers in San Diego. Certainly Junipero Serra is a key figure in that history and the museum does him a good honor. Stop by while at the Presidio and enjoy.
This is the museum of early California, founded by the San Diego Historical Society in the late 1920s. The large white mission revival building atop Peesidio Hill was completed at that time and marks the approximate location of the original fortress of San Diego. This was also the site of the original Mission San Diego, but because of a lack... 更多
As a history major, trying to acquire information for a paper on Junipero Serra, I found very few things in the museum useful, aside from the people. The people who work there are well knowledged on the subject, so if you want to learn anything aside from the basic, ask them.
We've made several trips to San Deigo's Old Town but had never taken the extra hike up to the Serra Museum and former Mission. The vast rolling grounds and this majestic building offer sweeping views of the region. There's a nice walking path located at the end of Mason St in Old Town that takes you up to the museum.
Went here to see the museum, after hiking uphill (no not ADA ) we paid our admission fee to try out more stairs. Some information but most was old news. One way up the tower and then down . Not suggested if you do not like stairs.
