  • I treated my good friend and her 11 year old daughter Emily to this venue. It was the first time for me as well. Frankly it was run down, many of the exhibits non-funtioning, and in general boring. Bu...  more »

  • Had a great time and was able to use our EBT card to get a discount. We stayed for a long time and tried visiting every room, but there is a lot to explore. We also saw someone having a birthday party there, which is a great idea since there's a lot of creative play and less quick play like where we normally have our parties. We were able to order pizza and eat in the lobby, however there are benches outside of you want to eat there as well.
  • There place is cute. Everyone is nice. But from a "museum" standpoint, I'd like to see more learning. Each item seemed more like a toy than a coupled learning experience. The kids loved it, so it's a fun place for them. I'd just like to see science, or history or ...
  • Perfect size and variety of experiences for our kids. We spent just or 2 hours there and our kids were content with all they were able to do and see. Really appreciated the interactive and problem solving exhibits. I think they need to reevaluate their membership pricing structure though. We live on the North side of Tucson and the current structure requires 4 visits to the downtown location for our family of 5.
  • İt is a great place with lot's of fun activities. İt is perfect for ages 2 and above. They will find definitely something for themselves. İf you buy your tickets online it will be cheaper. And they have discounts for military families.
  • This place is amazing! Super kid friendly area and staff! Worth every penny if you buy a membership. I love to take my toddler there and just follow him and he runs from room to room playing. The only real downside is traffic downtown and the fact that it's metered parking.

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.
