The Children’s Museum Tucson is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide fun, play-based, interactive, hands-on learning experiences for children and their families. With foresight and determination, a handful of prominent Tucsonans opened the Museum in 1986 in a one room building at Ft. Lowell Park. In 1991, the Children’s Museum Tucson moved into the historic Carnegie Library building in downtown Tucson. In 2010, over 120,000 children and families visited the Children’s Museum Tucson.

The Museum’s 17,000 square foot facility features twelve permanent interactive exhibits, including Tucson Electric Power’s Electri-­City, odyology, the Art Studio, Investigation Station, the Public Safety Station, Build It, Whistle Stop, Pet Vet and more. We also have Wee World which is specially designed for children four years and under.

Play is the primary component in the Museum’s interactive exhibits. Focusing on learning by doing encourages fun educational experiences between children and their parents/caregivers. Beyond play, the Children’s Museum Tucson provides our community’s children a great out-of-classroom space, as all of our exhibits are aligned with Arizona Academic Standards. To foster learning, we offer six age-appropriate Adventure Learning Tours that include a demonstration or activity coupled with Museum exploration.

The Museum offers special monthly events, programming for preschoolers and daily children’s activities. The Children’s Museum Tucson is also committed to exploring and celebrating the diverse cultures in our community. Each fall/winter season, the Museum hosts the Children’s Social Powwow and the Destination Celebrations, a series of multicultural celebrations highlighting the distinct cultures in Tucson.
