The Tucson Rodeo Parade Museum is a marvelous classroom for teaching students about our rich cultural heritage. The museum features displays of scenes of the old west, including blacksmithing, saddles and cowboy life on the range. Many historic wagons and carriages are displayed including buckboards, surreys, farm wagons, and Tucson’s first “paddy” wagon, as well as stagecoaches, a school bus and much more.
Thanks to generous funding from the Warden Family, we are able to offer limited funding to assist your school with the cost of transportation. Our museum is open for tours in January through of April 7, 2017. We cannot offer this funding during the week of the Rodeo, February 18-27, 2017.
To apply, please fill out the bus funding application here.
We look forward to working with you and your students.
