Cool Summer Nights at Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum

August 3, 2024 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free With Paid Admission

The Desert Museum is lovely during the day, but it’s even cooler after dark! Stop in every Saturday night throughout the summer to beat the heat while learning something neat! 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, grab a local beer and wander, experience a live animal encounter, scamper in Packrat Playhouse, feel the touch of a stingray, or participate in special nightly activities. See the schedule for weekly themes.
