By visit to San Diego did not include a car but I chose to walk from the harbor area but to Old Town and on to the museum. There are other ways of getting there. The museum covers more than just Junipero Serra but has some interesting information. The views of the city and surrounding area from the tower are... 更多
I would highly recommend a quick visit here! The views are amazing. We learned a lot about Junipero Serra and the history of San Diego. The museum is small, but worth the visit. Warning: No handicap access for anyone in a wheelchair or difficulty with stairs.
This is an excellent place for those that like history. It is placed on a hill overlooking San Diego. It is a great place to get some pictures of the museum and the surrounding city. The man at the desk will answer your questions and tell you where to go to see all the areas of the museum. There are... 更多
This hilltop museum founded in 1929 by city father George Marston that resembles a mission church has sweeping views of the city especially from the tower. In addition to the historic exhibits of early San Diego, you can watch a short video on early San Diego and play with touch and build displays with your children or grandchildren. Do leave... 更多
This is where San Diego was founded on July 16th of 1769, if you're a serious bicyclist then this is a great area to test your "climbing" skills, Presidio Park and the surrounding Old Town neighborhood have some nice curvy inclines. Serra Museum is a museum, not the original mission as some folks mistakenly believe, it was opened in 1929.... 更多
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!
