GRAND RE-OPENING FOR 2017 – January 2, 2017:
“Accentuating the positives” ………
2017’s theme focuses on the events that contributed to the growth of Tucson, and Southern Arizona, throughout the past centuries, and the continuing positive effects they’ve had on the present and future.
Video presentations trace the history of the Overland Mail Stagecoach route through Tucson that connected us to the east and west coast in the 1850s. Others present the importance of the Railroad in 1880 and the great aviation history in the early 20th century, and how these maintain an important part of today’s economy.
Another video highlights the history of the Rodeo Parade and Tucson Rodeo which were the foundations of Tucson’s tourist attractions in 1925. And there’s more.
All of this is surrounded by the terrific collection of over 100 horse-drawn vehicles from days gone by, which is why the PBS ‘ANTIQUES ROADSHOW’ featured this museum in its presentation in 2007.
The Museum opens Jan 2, 2017 and closes April 8, 2017*. Hours are 9:30 am – 3:30pm, Monday thru Saturday. Closed: SUNDAYS & HOLIDAYS.
