Presidio of Monterey Museum exhibits include:
A mural of a Native American woman greeting visitors at the museum's entrance, recalling the indigenous peoples who called the historic
Presidio site home long before it became a strategic military location.
- Year On a Cavalry Post video presenting life on the Presidio of Monterey in 1938. The views of the Bay and
surrounding areas show how Monterey and the Peninsula looked prior to the rapid growth following World War II.
Photos of the people who are part of the Presidio are scattered throughout the museum. Most show the common soldier as he worked and lived.
A life-size horse and lieutenant depicts the Presidio that is clearest in the memories of long-time residents of Monterey. All
the tack and the officer's uniform are original for the period between World War I and II. The saddle is a 1928 McClellan.
