  • We just happened to be driving around and stopped not knowing what to expect. Someone had a lot of Taxidermy that was donated. There are animals that I have never heard of. I am an outdoor person so I...  more »

  • Beautiful! The taxidermy is on point! Want to pet a bison, stand under a giraffe, sit with a crocodile? This is your place. None are alive since it's a museum not a zoo but they're so stunningly stuffed you can turn a corner and still feel like you're looking a lion in the eyes! I would absolutely recommend! Not much food but has a place to eat. Has a theater where planet Earth plays so check out their schedule beforehand. Great place on a hot day.
  • This is a great place to visit. Take the time to stop and read at each display, there is a ton of information about each different species of animals. Our great granddaughter is only 7, had been there with us several months ago and loved it. She got up this morning and begged us to take her back to the place where all the animals are inside. She especially loves the cats, cheetahs, jaguars etc. It is well worth the trip to Tucson. It is a large, beautiful building, with a lot of animals represented, so give yourself a few hours to wander through it and soak up the information, while viewing an amazing collection . We love it and will be back to visit again!
  • One of the more underrated things to do, cheaper than the desert museum so we decided to do this, it was very interesting and quite a good opportunity to learn! We were very happy to stumble upon this place! On a rainy day it was nice and quiet
  • Great place for kids or just to get out of the heat! Lots of learning opportunities and hands on materials. Featured artists room is always a treat! Takes about 1 1/2 to walk through and see everything. Gift shop and food available with reasonable prices. Had a very enjoyable time.
  • It was wonderful. I had my 14 and 8 year old granddaughters with me. They had great time. With each new room to explore they were thrilled. We saw the giraffe movie and watched a birth. Then we hit the gift shop. Most items were very reasonably priced. I was happy. Great day.
