What people are saying about Tucson

The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is a great and extraordinary museum. Usually you stay here for 3-4 hours. It's a great place for families and children. All the animals of the desert can be seen on site. Since 80 percent of the museum is outdoors, it is important to wear a hat, water (can be refilled free of charge at water points in the park) and good sunscreen. Have fun exploring the desert museum.
