The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is located in the Tucson Mountain County Park just west of the city of Tucson, Arizona. We were delightfully surprised and this distinctly different type of museum, and highly recommend a visit if you happen to be in this part of Arizona.
The Desert museum is a blend of zoo and botanic garden. There are beautiful trails that wind through the museum taking you through different types of desert zones showcasing the huge variety of plant life that may be overlooked as you drive through desert areas.
As you wander on the paths you will also see animals that are indigenous to the desert in their naturalized settings.
