The Presidio of Monterey Museum exhibits lead visitors through Monterey's various stages of military development – from the indigenous period which highlights the area's native populations; through the Spanish and Mexican periods; and up to present day. Because of the important role of the military in Monterey between 1902 and today, the majority of the museum is dedicated to the development of the Presidio as a training base. The Museum and Lower Presidio Historic Park were created by a partnership between the City of Monterey and the Presidio of Monterey.
The Presidio of Monterey Museum is located on Corporal Ewing Road in Lower Presidio Historic Park. The Park is open to the public and free parking is available.
