This is on the way to the Wild Animal Park and we stopped in...great little museum full of history, and an excellent Visitor's Center. I thought I would be bored, but was actually pleasantly surprised.

This is a great little park. The battle of San Pasaqual is a great story. This is one of the few battles that the Mexicans (really Californios) actually won during the Mexican-American war. The battle involved a sneak attack, malfunctioning weapons, miscommunication, etc. Small little museum to visit with diagrams and photos, and a short little video. A few trails to hike on. It is a cool little place to visit.

My wife found this place in the AAA Tour Guide Book. We decided to check it out, and we are glad we did. The gentleman at the Visitor Center was very knowledgeable. He not only shared information about the Park, but also gave us some suggestions of other places we might want to visit while we were in the area. They have some interesting displays you will not see anywhere else.

My grandson enjoyed walking around looking at everything. A little too young to understand the meaning of it all, but will when he gets a little older. Would recommend if you are in the area.

A step back into California history, we were never taught in school. Easy access, lots of information about the battle
