  • We took our 2 year daughter for some play time while we were visiting Tucson. The location was a lot bigger than I expected with many different rooms for kids to learn and explore and play. It was a b...  more »
  • Outstanding children's museum, geared to multiple age levels and parents as well. Moderately priced. Would be nice if they would ask parents to turn off their cell phones so they would actually intera...  more »
  • Great place to bring your kids especially when it is too hot to be outside. My 6-year-old son had so much fun in the ear, nose, throat and grocery store area.  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.
