NileGuide Expert tip:
The museum is an easy stopover on your way to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum or Old Tucson Studios.
The International Wildlife Museum is located on the west side near the Tucson Mountains, and makes a convenient stopover if you're heading to Old Tucson or the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. This museum, founded in 1988 and a member of the Safari Club International Foundation, showcases over 400 species of mammals, insects, and birds from around the world. Some animals in the collection are over 100 years old, donated to the Safari Club by captive breeding programs, wildlife rehabilitation centers, government agencies, zoos, and private individuals. Most of what you'll see here is reminiscent of a traditional natural history museum, with dioramas of stuffed animals shown in their natural settings. A fascinating, if sometimes eerie, place to see exotic animals up close.
