Living History Days are held on the second Saturday of the month from October through April to allow visitors to experience firsthand Tucson’s history.
The Presidio Museum is managed by the Tucson Presidio Trust for Historic Preservation. This is 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.
The Tucson Presidio Museum’s mission is to promote, preserve, and interpret the origins, history, and natural environment of Tucson while celebrating Tucson’s multi-cultural community.
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.
