Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum

Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum, Arizona State Museum
An extensive outdoor nature park, which exists to educate the public about the unique Sonoran desert.
Over 300 species of live animals and over 1,300 species of plants indigenous to the Sonoran desert are exhibited in natural habitats. The Arizona Sonora Desert Museum was rated one of America's 10 top zoos by Parade magazine.
The Museum’s newest “invisi-fence” enclosure has been patented and has won many fans at the museum’s new coyote exhibit.
The exhibit gives visitors the feeling of walking in the desert surrounded by wildlife, because the fenced enclosure cannot be easily seen. The coyote exhibit is adjacent to the javelina exhibit, another favorite at the Museum.

Arizona State Museum
Located on the campus of the University of Arizona, this museum is the Southwest’s oldest and largest anthropology museum.
Some 20,000 Southwest Indian whole-vessel ceramics combine to form the focus of ASM’s Pottery Project.
This collection – the largest and most comprehensive of its kind – is one of the nation’s most significant cultural resources. It was recently designated an Official Project of the Save America’s Treasures program, a public private partnership between the White House Millennium Council and the National Trust for Historic Preservation to celebrate and preserve our nation’s cultural legacy.
