Arizona Sonora Desert Museum
The Arizona Sonora Desert Museum is a world-class natural history museum and is one of Tucson’s most beloved treasures. Noted as “the most distinctive zoo in the United States,” it is part zoological park, part natural history museum, and part botanical garden. Visitors have the opportunity to view the Sonoran Desert’s collage of desert wonders through flora, fauna, and geologic displays. Docents are on hand to answer questions and often have a bird, reptile or mammal out for guests to meet face to face. Gift shops and lunch are also available.
