A full day of fun suitable for the entire family. Come explore two of Tucson's most popular attractions, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and Old Tucson.
The Desert Museum is ranked on TripAdvisor.com as one of the Top 10 Museums in the country and the #1 Tucson attraction. Unlike most museums, about 85% of the experience is outdoors! The 98-acre Desert Museum is a fusion experience: zoo, botanical garden, art gallery, natural history museum, and aquarium. It has 21 interpreted acres with two miles of walking paths through various desert habitats, 230 animal species, 1,200 types of plants-56,000 individual specimens, and one of the world's most comprehensive regional mineral collections
Old Tucson is one of Arizona's top Wild West attractions, featuring live action stunt shows, musicals and other live entertainment, vintage rides for the kids, genuine Southwest BBQ, and special events throughout the season. Step back in time as you make your way through town, walking the same streets made famous by movie legends such as John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Elizabeth Taylor, Steve Martin, Sharon Stone, and Martin Short, just to name a few. Immortalized in more than 400 films and commercial productions, Old Tucson remains the region's premier film location.
There are many activities available in Old Tucson, ranging from free carousel rides, antique car rides, and train rides to A shooting gallery, a spooky Iron Door Mine Adventure, and gold panning! For a true old west experience, you can always catch a ride through town on an authentic, horse-drawn stage coach!Itinerary
