Children’s Museum Oro Valley at Tohono Chul

COMING JANUARY 2023 – Children’s Museum Oro Valley is moving to Tohono Chul!

Tohono Chul is proud to announce our partnership with the Children’s Museum Oro Valley! Together, children and families will be able to engage in a wide variety of fun activities and educational programming designed to stimulate young minds and foster an appreciation for the Sonoran Desert.

CMOV’s location at 11015 N. Oracle Road will be open through Nov. 30, 2022. Children’s Museum Oro Valley at Tohono Chul will open to the public on Jan. 3, 2023, and will be open from 9:00 am -1:00 pm Tuesday-Sunday.


Children’s Museum Oro Valley at Tohono Chul will be a place for kids and families to explore nature through fun, hands-on exhibits.

The museum will have indoor and outdoor exhibits, with daily activities and programming for kids and families that will mesh with the environmental focus of Tohono Chul. Children will learn all about the culture, animals, and plants of our Sonoran Desert region!

Visitors to Tohono Chul’s museum and CMOV can enjoy an array of exhibits and programs for one entry fee. Kids 5 and under have free admission year-round! Active CMOV memberships will be honored through June 30th, 2023

Tohono Chul has a huge role in closing the nature-deficit gap by letting kids be wild explorers of our gardens. I am thrilled that CMOV’s incredible programs and educators accelerate our goal to pro-actively welcome families here to experience the wonder of the Sonoran Desert. We can hardly wait to see the next generation of nature-lovers grow up at Tohono Chul!”
