Cool Summer Nights at Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum
August 11 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:00pm on Saturday, repeating until September 1, 2018
Beat the Arizona heat and enjoy a family-friendly outing during Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum’s popular Cool Summer Nights.
What makes these Saturday evenings so enchanting? Stunning sunsets, skies speckled with stars, night-blooming plants, and animals reappearing from their daytime naps.
The desert comes alive at night as nocturnal animals awake. Bats perform aerial acrobatics in pursuit of dinner, beavers splash around in their pond, and scorpions glow green under black light. Bring your flashlight and explore, experience a live animal encounter, or participate in special nightly activities. See the schedule below for weekly themes and activities.
