Historically significant to Tucson, the Museum is a reconstruction of the Tucson Presidio built in 1775. Get a glimpse of what life in the Presidio was like for soldiers and other residents with docent tours as well as additional highlights like an original 150-year-old Sonoran row house and a prehistoric pit house. The Presidio Museum is managed by the Tucson Presidio Trust for Historic Preservation, a not-for-profit entity whose mission is to guide and aid in the interpretation of history at the Presidio San Agustín through research, education and living history experiences.
