“Nice little museum, interesting digs”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Historically important site, now a nice little museum and some digs that are open for viewing. We enjoyed the hour there. But it is a long trip, and you have to have time on your hands. The art museum was a surprise bonus.

Thanks for your review on TripAdvisor of your visit to the Tubac Presidio. When you mentioned the surprise bonus Art Museum, did you mean our 16 Cavalcade of History paintings in Otero Hall or the other local Art Museum, the Tubac Center of the Arts? Thanks again for posting about us.

“History Lesson of Arizona & Tubac”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

You will find a self-guided tour of the history of Tubac & Arizona. A group of grade school students from a elementary school near by were there experiencing a hands on history lesson in the one room school house. The museum is FULL of relics and information about the fort, the town, the state and the culture over the years.

“Great museum experience”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

The attention to historical detail and the care that has gone into the full range of exhibits makes this museum a credit to those who have put all the time and energy into its presentation. It effectively informs whilst creating an atmosphere that takes you back in time. We will be going back just to sit in the open spaces and soak up the history. Many thanks to the Director and volunteers for keeping this unique and essential chronicle of the area open and inspiring their visitors.
