Beat the Arizona heat and enjoy a family-friendly outing during popular Cool Summer Nights at Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum every Saturday evening, May 18-August 31, 2019.  Enjoy clear views of stunning sunsets, star-specked skies, night-blooming plants, and animals reappearing from their daytime naps. The Sonoran 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 on for weekly themes and activities.
