Children’s Museum Tucson this January
January 1, 2016 @ 8:00 am - January 31, 2016 @ 5:00 pm UTC+0
It’s our Anniversary! Original signs from our humble beginnings. The Children’s Museum Tucson is celebrating 30 years of bringing play-based learning and fun to the kids of Southern Arizona. From our beginnings in 1986 as the Southwest Children’s Exploratory Center, the Museum’s goal was to make education fun, encouraging our visitors to “Please touch the exhibit.” It was a group of civic leaders who recognized the need for a children’s educational museum in Tucson, and made their dream a reality.We’ll be marking this amazing anniversary with special events and offers throughout the year at our Downtown location. Please come down often to help us celebrate!
