About Us

The Friends of the Tubac Presidio and Museum, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit, was established in June of 2013 to serve as stewards of the Tubac Presidio Historic State Park and Museum on behalf of and in partnership with Arizona State Parks and Trails.

The Tubac Presidio Park contains historic buildings, a museum with exhibits covering 2,000 years of extraordinary Southwest history, an art gallery, and ruins of the Spanish fort from the mid-1700's. The vast history found at the Park represents a multitude of cultures including Tohono O'odham, Apache, Mexican, Spanish, Territorial and American. All additional programs held at the park are inclusive to these groups and provide opportunities for the community to learn about one another.


Cultivating curiosity and appreciation of local history and diverse cultural traditions through education and stewarding the Presidio’s resources for past, present, and future generations.

The Friends of the Tubac Presidio and Museum celebrate the vast history of the people and cultures that have shaped the local community. We commit to fostering an organization that is transparent, diverse, inclusive, and equitable for all.

We welcome people of all backgrounds, perspectives, culture, and experiences.

We understand that achieving equity for all is complex and will not be accomplished by simply treating everyone equally. All Tubac Presidio and Museum visitors, volunteers, staff, and stakeholders are treated with dignity and respect, alongside consideration for individual circumstances.

We commit to creating an environment in which all individuals and groups feel welcomed, respected, valued, and supported to participate in telling the story of the Tubac Presidio.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
