Tucson Things to Do!

Arizona Main
Sierra Vista

Jacob's Review:
   It was really cool, there was air blowin a ball up, and it wasn’t touching anything. We played in the museum and there is a spinny thing that you spin, spin, spin and you get really dizzy and a show that we were learning outer space.

Dad's Notes:
   Hands on science exhibits, theater of stars, laser light shows (the Planetarium is closed - but there is a portable one that can come to your school or event), minerals & gem museum, nighttime observatory and, of course, a gift shop. Motion machine, bell jar, vortex and more hands on exhibits. Shows start promptly - no late seating, no kids under 3 allowed.

   You can go just to the Mineral Museum (which would include the numerous science exhibits) without going to the laser show - If laser shows aren't you thing I still highly recommend this place just for the science exhibits and mineral museum.

   The Observatory is open in Evenings Wed - Sat Just after Sunset till 10 PM depending on the weather (call ahead). The gift shop (Called the Science Store) is full of great science toys and experiments!
