Tucson Children's Museum
Tucson, AZ 85701
The Children’s Museum Tucson is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide fun, play-based, interactive, hands-on learning experiences for children and their families. With foresight and determination, a handful of prominent Tucsonans opened the Museum in 1986 in a one room building at Ft. Lowell Park. In 1991, the Children’s Museum Tucson moved into the historic Carnegie Library building in downtown Tucson. In 2011, over 125,000 children and families visited the Children’s Museum Tucson.
The Museum’s 17,000 square foot facility features twelve permanent interactive exhibits, including Tucson Electric Power’s Electri-City, the Bodyology, the Art Studio, the Ocean Discovery Center, the Public Safety Station, Build It, Whistle Stop, Pet Vet and more. We also have the Enchanted Rain Forest which is specially designed for children four years and under.
Tips from foursquare
Amazing place to spend a hot afternoon with the kids. Don't forget the camera the kids can dress up and ride in a real life fire truck or on a police motorcycle!
Children's museums are always on the to-do list.
Find a cumfy chair. You will be here awhile.
Did you know? The museum occupies the former Carnegie Library building, one of 2,509 libraries built in the late-19th and early 20th centuries by steel industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie
