|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 11:00am on Sunday and Thursday, repeating indefinitely

The Presidio San Agustín del Tucson Museum is a re-creation of the Tucson Presidio built in 1775. Visitors travel back in time to learn about life as early Tucsonans would have lived it. Docent tours discuss life in the Santa Cruz Valley for early Native Americans, Presidio residents and Territorial Period settlers. The fusion of Spanish, Mexican, Native American and American cultures is highlighted in period foods, clothing, and tools. Throughout the week, short demonstrations such as the comparison of Old and New World foods, making dye from Cochineal, and others may be available for visitors, who will also see the archaeological remains of a pit house, walk along the original Presidio wall and experience a 150 year old classic Sonoran Row house.
