About the Presidio Museum

Presidio San Agustin del Tucson

The Presidio San Agustín del Tucson Museum is located on the northeast corner of the original Presidio at 196 N. Court Ave. The Presidio Museum is a reconstruction of the original Tucson Presidio built in 1775.  Docent tours give visitors a glimpse of what life in the Presidio was like for soldiers and other residents.  Additional highlights include an original 150-year-old Sonoran row house and a 2,000-year-old 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.

Tucson's Presidio District

The Presidio Museum is located within Tucson's real old town, the historic Presidio District of Downtown Tucson.  Located across the street is Old Town Artisans, which houses several art galleries and shops in the longest-inhabited set of buildings in all of Tucson – built in the 1850’s, right over the remains of the original Presidio wall.  La Cocina Restaurant is located within Old Town Artisans' beautiful courtyard, and here you'll also find the Dusty Monk Pub.  For more information about the Presidio District, see www.TucsonPresidioDistrict.com
