We are actively working on ways to reopen the grounds. We will do so when we know we can provide the safety measures that you and the community deserve.

For your health and safety and for that of staff, volunteers and the general public all of Tohono Chul is closed until further notice. This is a necessary precaution given the best available science about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and how to contain its spread. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and keep you updated.

The closure includes:

  • Any and all access to the gardens, Museum Shops, Exhibit House, and the Garden Bistro
  • Events including the Spring Plant Sale, Plan Your Estate Seminars, Sundays in the Garden Concert Series, and the Sonoran Spring Gala
  • All classes and travel

Beyond this two-month closure, we have also canceled all events, classes, and travel through the end of September including exhibit openings and new member tours. As we near the end of the closure, we will keep you informed of our other daily offerings, be they limited or canceled.

Your patience and understanding during this difficult time is greatly appreciated.  Thank you so very much!

Pets are not allowed on the grounds and should not be left in your car. However, as provided for by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Arizona State Law, service animals and service animals in training are welcome. We ask that you and your service animal check in with Admissions when you arrive. While a license or documentation is not required, we are allowed to ask whether the animal is needed because of a disability and what work or task the animal has been trained to perform for you. Please note that most of our grounds are natural Sonoran Desert that may be unsuitable for some animals. Temperatures can rise above 100° with correspondingly high surface temperatures that can be harmful to a dog’s feet. Spiny cactus and other plants as well as potentially dangerous (coyotes and javelina) or venomous (rattlesnakes and scorpions) animals may also be encountered along the trails.

Tohono Chul does not allow therapy or emotional support animals, not defined as service animals under the ADA.

Museum Day – CANCELED

Given the heightened focus and quickly changing nature of the Coronoavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are assessing public offerings and making tough decisions about whether to cancel or postpone our programs and events so as to protect not only our members and guests, but our dedicated staff and volunteers.
