"Great for family and all ages." Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum Tip by toddecus
Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Tucson: 30 reviews and 45 photos
The Desert Museum is one of the unique features of Tucson that you won't find anywhere else in the world. It is barely a museum, but rather really a zoo of Sonoran Desert Animals. This is one of the few places in the world where you can see some really amazing desert creatures, from rattle snakes, to gila monsters, to Javelina (wild desert pig). Not to mention the up close and personal encounter with humming birds and a mountain lion. My daughter is two years old and loved it. We went in late December and it was comfortable, and busy. You do want to get there right when the Museum opens to avoid the lines. Food is available, not great and a little pricey, and it can take you a whole day to see all of the exhibits. We were there for about 3 hours and saw 70% but the little ones ran out of gas. We cruised through a few things that were less interesting to us. They even have an underground cave experience. All in all, I highly recommend this as one of those things you should do if you ever find yourself near Tucson.
