Lots of interactive activities. Stories were good and the kids were entertained. Close to all the shops and restaurants in Old Town so we were able to have some of the famous Old Town Mexican food after our museum tour.

Very nice tour for adults and children. Narrates the history of how the Mormons traveled from the midwest to San Diego. Plenty of parking.

What a charming place! Your kids will love this tour as much as you do. They have animation and you move from room to room to be part of this famous 500 mile march. Great history lesson!
