For native flora and fauna, there’s no better place for spectacular photos. Focused on the preservation of the Sonoran Desert, The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum will turn your idea of a museum inside out. Photographers will experience a quintessential Sonoran Desert experience which includes: an unforgettable fusion zoo, botanical garden, natural history museum, aquarium and art gallery (all of which are highly photogenic)! Highlights include the hummingbird aviary and Earth Sciences Center, where guests descend into a replica limestone cave. Enjoy live animal presentations that showcase a variety of desert animals and be sure not to miss Raptor Free Flight (seasonal) where native birds of prey fly so close you can feel the brush of feathers! Open daily, year-round. Hours/rates vary.
