Split a day between here and Saguaro National Park.
- The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is one of three or four not-to-be-missed attractions for anyone visiting Tucson. Spread across 21 acres in the drop-dead beautiful desert west of Tucson, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum (locals refer to it simply as "the Desert museum") is a seamless mix of world-renowned zoo, natural history museum and botanical garden. The museum's outdoor trails offer an immersion into the Sonoran Desert that can't be beat. The desert museum is a wonderful complement to the neighboring Saguaro National Park.
