Explore the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum

January 11, 2021

Take a walk on the wild side at the acclaimed Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. Just a quick trip west of our Tucson resort, the 98-acre attraction is home to a zoo, botanical garden, natural history museum, art gallery, and aquarium — all in one destination!

Since the museum first opened its doors in 1952, it has worked diligently to protect the natural ecosystems of the Sonoran Desert Region by inspiring visitors to live in harmony with the natural world. From educational webinars online to student exhibitions and openings, the museum makes it easy to fall in love with all of Arizona’s natural wonders.

Get an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the zoo’s animal training, as expert keepers work their magic in a one-hour session to help animals overcome stage fright. Or join the crew for their brand new Avian Adventures program, where a trained raptor will fly directly onto your arm for a special photo op!

No matter what’s calling your name — a watercolor painting class, a wolf conservation lecture, or 2 miles of scenic walking paths — the stunning desert landscape and all of its inhabitants are ready to greet you at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.
