This is a small, relatively new and attractive museum, staffed by friendly and knowledgeable individuals, some whom are English-speaking.

There are three small museums that comprise the complex. Good place to take children who are at least 8 years old. We were four adults and enjoyed learning about Tecate's local history. Well done!

A very interesting exhibit on the Kumeyaay Indians and other history of the Tecate area. A beautiful setting in a safe spot. In fact, Tecate is a very safe area. A visit should go hand and hand with visiting La Rumorosa.
