The Children’s Museum Oro Valley will close at 11015 N. Oracle Road on December 1, 2022 to prepare to launch a new collaboration, Children’s Museum Oro Valley at Tohono Chul, on January 3, 2023.
Children's Museum Oro Valley is a 3,330 square foot facility that has exhibits that focus on childhood education, the arts, literacy, science, and school readiness. Fun areas in the one-room museum include a Farmer's Market, Peek-A-Boo Palace, Literacy Corner, Art Studio, Lullaby Lounge, and Toddler Town.
Ideal age range for this museum is babies through age 5, but older kids will likely have fun exploring alongside younger siblings.
The museum is open Tuesday – Friday: 9:00am to 4:00pm; Saturday & Sunday: 10:00am to 4:00pm. Closed on Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.
Admission is $7.00 for children and adults (ages 1 through adult). Little ones, 12 months and under, are free.
