Tucson Children's Museum
Located in downtown Tucson, the Tucson Children's Museum offers interactive exhibit areas that allow children to explore and discover for themselves in galleries. In the past galleries have included Dinosaur Canyon, the TCM Bakery and Farmer's Market, Wee World, the ZOOMzone, the Ocean Discovery Center, and others. Please visit the website for dates and times of daily featured activities.
My first impression as we walked up to the front of this historic structure was how poorly funded it must be to look so run-down. The inside of the museum wasn't much better. How unfair to the local children to have such a "weak" place to play and learn. (To scummy for us.) The Zoo is a much better place to go.
Wasn't impressed with the museum. Lots of the hands on exhibits were out of order. Some of the buttons with sound were not working. Even the kiosk to write comments about the museum were out of order. We were in and out in about 45 minutes. Lots of the exhibits looked old and dusty. We would not go back.
My kids love this place. They call it the 'dinosaur museum' because the focal room has life size moving dinosaurs (which my 2 yr old thinks are scary!). There's also an under-the-sea exhibit, a fire truck, computers and trains. The grocery store is the other favorite exhibit - very hands on. It looks like they're adding some science/electricity exhibits - but it's not finished - been very slow to build. There's no food sold there, but take a picnic because there's a nice grassy courtyard in front.
