    Not only is it educational, my grandson is able to touch and learn! He absolutely adores the fire engine! Thank you for giving children a place to go where they can be their truest selves! We stay for...  more »

    Other than a pool , it is difficult to find a place where young, very active children can run around and play during a summer heat wave. This place did the trick. My only complaint is there is limited...  more »

    We've been coming here for years and our kids have basically grown up here. There are activities for young and older kids, with all of it having some sort of hands-on activities, so kids learn by playing. The staff is friendly and helpful, and there's another to do to occupy a few hours of your day. Over those years, the museum has updated and upgraded a number of exhibits. Given that there are so often new things to see, even if you've been here before, it may be worth your time to go again.

    I enjoy the membership that I have with my children here, it was $100 for 2 adults and up to 4 household children, good for a year, (this is our 3rd yr membership) we can walk in and play anytime. I enjoy going their because my kids and I can beat the heat and play. No matter how many times I go I still find something to engage in with them. Their is 8 huge rooms with a bunch of different stuff in them! And places for adults to sit!!

    Perfect to get out of the summer heat. Lots of different rooms and activities. Staff is very friendly. Activities change every once in a while. Parking can sometimes be difficult. Annual membership is highly recommended! Not too expensive.

    This is a very child friendly place for children of all ages. It teaches them different skills. How things work in different situations. It is very hands on. There is a fire engine, ambulance and motorcycle for them to get in and on. Has working lights and steering. All the kids hate when they have to leave. There is a grocery store with make believe food and shopping carts. There are also check out areas to pay for groceries. There is a train to go on and a activity center. There are many more things to do to many to list. I highly recommend it especially on these hot days.

    My 2 year old daughter loves this place and by default so do I. It keeps her entertained for hours. I think it has some really cool science and other experiential learning things. I recommend this place for anyone with children.

Where to stay in Tucson

To discover the tranquility of the Sonoran Desert, book your stay at an inn just a short drive from Tucson. Staying on the outskirts of the city allows you quick and easy access to some of Arizona's wildest areas, though it does require a car if you wish to enjoy Tucson's shops and restaurants. For the ultimate in indulgence, consider one of the city's award-winning luxury resorts, which feature full-service spa and fitness centers, championship golf courses, lighted tennis courts, and indoor swimming pools.
