About Us

Children’s Museum Oro Valley at Tohono Chul has indoor and outdoor exhibits, daily activities and programming for kids and families that mesh with the natural setting of Tohono Chul, with a focus on the culture, animals and plants of our Sonoran Desert region.

Bring your stroller or wagon to use as you explore the gardens along the way to the CMOV@TC area. We are open from 9 am-1 pm Tuesday-Sunday, with open activity areas and scheduled programs every day.

Outdoor spaces are accessible during regular Tohono Chul hours, daily from 8 am-5 pm, though not all components are available when CMOV is closed.

Visitors will experience Tohono Chul and CMOV exhibits and programs for one entry fee. All ages are welcome and kids 5-and-under will have free admission year-round!
