Our next Museum Discovery Day is planned for the evening of Friday, Dec. 14. from 6-10PM. Museum Discovery Day offers free admission.
The Arizona Museum of Natural History (AzMNH), located at 53 N. Macdonald, has dinosaurs that roar and so much more. Visitors can try their luck at gold panning, wonder through an ancient Hohokam village or take a selfie with a T. rex. There is something exciting for everyone.
* Free days are very popular and attract crowds. To better serve visitors, avoid long lines and allow as many people as possible to enjoy the museum, the museums may implement timed tickets at the door on a first-come, first-served basis. No advanced tickets will be distributed.
Should there be wait time for entry, visitors can check out holiday-themed activities taking place at Merry Main Street - another City of Mesa family-friendly event - and 2nd Friday Night Out in Downtown Mesa. Both events are within walking distance from all three museums, along Main Street. Enjoy food trucks, Mesa Christmas Market, Winter Wonderland Ice Rink and more
