Space, Science & Technology

The Tucson area is well-known as an “astronomy capital of the world.” Planetariums and science centers – in town or atop a mountain – are staffed by experts and specialize in hands-on, educational fun. A renowned aircraft museum and a former Cold War missile site will intrigue all ages.
