SELF GUIDED MUSEUM VISITS

Self guided museum visits are welcome. The museum space is limited and we want to be able to accommodate your group comfortably so large groups should be scheduled through the staff. Docent guided visits also need to be scheduled through the museum.

STUDENT FIELD TRIPS

GUIDEBOOKS

La Pilita has published two walking guides available at the museum. One explores east of Main Avenue and one takes the visitors west. Between them a visitor can learn about “Barrio Viejo” and its western part “El Hoyo”. The booklets were published with a grant from AZ Humanities Council and the support of Godat Design. Barrio Viejo: A walk through time, place and story in Tucson, Arizona, and A Walk through time, place and story in Barrio El Hoyo/El Jardin from prehistory, to presidio, to today. are available at the museum for $2.00 each.

The Barrio El Hoyo/El Jardin is available at this site in pdf format for teachers and visitors.
