The Presidio District Tour includes a tour of the Presidio Museum, lunch at La Cocina Restaurant, and a tour of the historic buildings at the Tucson Museum of Art.  The tour begins at the Presidio Museum where visitors will experience how history comes alive, featuring:

  • Old and new world food tastings
  • Blacksmith and musket demonstrations
  • Areas of the Presidio Museum including the soldiers’ quarters and a pre-railroad Sonoran row house, most likely made from bricks that were once in the Presidio walls

Attendees will then enjoy a delicious lunch at La Cocina Restaurant.

After lunch, the journey through Tucson’s rich history continues at the Tucson Museum of Art and Historic Block. Five historic houses on the grounds of the Tucson Museum of Art built between the mid-1850s and the early 1900s will be explored:

  • J. Knox Corbett House
  • La Casa Cordova
  • Edward Nye Fish House
  • Romero House
  • Stevens/Duffield House

The tour begins at 10:30 am and concludes at 1:30 pm. The cost for the tour and lunch is $45, and attendees must register and pay in advance at www.TucsonPresidio.com.
