Junipero Serra Museum - Presidio Park, San Diego: 2 reviews and 10 photos
In 1769 Spain established the Presidio of San Diego and is the oldest European settlement on the Pacific Coast of the US and Canada. Once a fortified military colony it grew to become the chief administrative/judicial center for the region and home to more than five hundred inhabitants. After República Mexicána in 1821, the Presidio grew, then by 1835 was largely abandoned. Now up the hill as it over looks much of San Diego now, Junipero Serra Museum built in 1929 now houses many of the old artifacts found on the site. The museum illustrates the changing times of San Diego of the past to today. It has a wonderful little room that provides hands on materials that settlers would had woven, grown or made that children can feel and enjoy.
