At the Mormon Battalion Historic Site, missionaries will guide you on an interactive video tour to help you understand the significance of the Mormon Battalion. You will learn about the faith, service, and sacrifice of the men who volunteered for that long march and the women and children who accompanied them
The tour lasts about 45 minutes. After the tour, you can look at historical artifacts and get a free photograph of yourself or your group. You can also enjoy demonstrations on gold panning and brickmaking. If you choose to experience all that the site offers, plan to spend between 1 and 1½ hours there.
Admission is free, and all areas of the building are accessible to visitors with disabilities. The site is located across the street from Old Town San Diego State Park, which includes other historical attractions and also features restaurants, stores, and entertainment. Because Old Town is a popular place to visit, you may not be able to park right next to the Mormon Battalion site.
Free parking is available on the streets and in some parking lots. Other parking lots charge a fee.
