Tucson Entertainment


Tucson is filled with fascinating museums and exciting attractions. Several Tucson museums feature Arizona's history including The Arizona Historical Society and the Tucson Museum of Art, which also features contemporary art. The International Wildlife Museum, Tucson Children's Museum, Pima Air and Space Museum and the Arizona State Museum also house exciting exhibits.

The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show held in February each year is one of the world's largest gem, fossil and mineral shows. Over 3,500 dealers from around the world are participate in this well-known event.

The people of Tucson have created an artistic environment cited as a "mini mecca" for the arts by The Wall Street Journal. Support for the arts is apparent in the city's efforts to revitalize the downtown by creating a designated Arts District. The emphasis on the arts is long-standing, resulting in Tucson being one of only 14 U.S. cities that maintains professional opera, a symphony orchestra, ballet and theater companies. Tucson's ethnic arts groups have garnered national attention.

Sonoran desert wildlife can be viewed up-close at the Tucson Botanical Gardens, the Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum and the Reid Park Zoo. The world famous Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum displays over 1,200 kinds of plants and 200 animal species native to the Sonoran desert.

For western flavor, residents and visitors go to Old Tucson Studios. Built in 1939 by Columbia Pictures for the movie "Arizona," the studios are now used for TV movies, big screen productions and music videos. The Mission San Xavier Del Bac, known as the "White Dove of the Desert" provides a true historical flavor and is one of Father Kino's Sonoran missions, nearly 300 years old.

As one of the world's foremost areas in astronomy, the Tucson area offers public access to the greatest concentration of observatories in the world--the Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium, Steward Observatory and Kitt Peak National Observatory.
