Long Description:
The stamp is available behind the counter of the entrance/store.
The Presidio San Agustín del Tucson Museum is a re-creation of the Tucson Presidio built in 1775. Visitors travel back in time to learn about life as early Tucsonans would have lived it. Docent tours discuss life in the Santa Cruz Valley for early Native Americans, Presidio residents and Territorial Period settlers. See the archaeological remains of a pit house, walk along the original Presidio wall and experience a 150 year old classic Sonoran Row house.
When I visited in February there was an event going on there with many people in period dress. Notably there were a few blacksmiths doing their thing and some soldiers performing a demonstration of defending the walls by firing blanks.
