It's not one of the biggest zoos, but it has a good variety of animals. One of the biggest disappointments was the giraffe feeding. It only happens once or twice a day, and you have to pay to feed them. I thought it would be...More

Hi. The last two gave you some good tips. I’m only going to add that the Sonoran Desert Museum is mostly dirt paths. So if you have a stroller, small kids or walking restrictions this can be challenging. Also once you are way out on the paths, there is no water or bathrooms. It’s a great perspective of our living desert otherwise. For kids they have a stamp book of animal tracks you can buy. I think it’s $1.00. There are stamp stations around the grounds that they have to locate and stamp their book. They typically have a daily animal encounter schedule up for review. Also they have a restaurant / cafe with good food.
The zoo is more geared towards kids with giraffe feedings and a carrousel ride. Other than the giraffe feedings they do not any other scheduled encounters most days. Sometimes volunteers have small animals out in the education center. They also have a cafe.
