  • Tucson is a kid-friendly town, with plenty of museums, attractions, and sites to capture the attention of young children, tweens, and teens alike. Our number one pick is the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, because where else can you safely bet on seeing a mountain lion, javelina, and coyote, all in the same day? On the way to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, stop by the International Wildlife Museum, which features an odd yet fascinating collection of taxidermy.

    With a strong aviation community, Tucson is home to the Pima Air and Space Museum, where children can get up close and personal with giant, World War II-era planes. Or, to celebrate in the spirit of Tucson's Old West heritage, visit Trail Dust Town, a Western-themed park featuring shops, restaurants, and kid-friendly attractions. Old Tucson, our number five pick, not only offers Wild West excitement but a glimpse into one of Arizona's most storied film studios.
