World class expert Dillon Horger is responsible for one of the most remarkable experiences imaginable - raptor (and non-raptor) wild bird flight demonstrations. Personally, my wife and I felt lucky to be alive for this experience. The live gila monster and rattle snake lectures were also a highlight. Notable, the entire staff are very happy and friendly.

It is still a bit hot in Tucson for the amount of unshaded walking one does at the Desert Museum. The Birds of Prey Show is excellent. I'd come again later in the year when it is cooler.

This is my third trip to this unique outdoor museum. The animals were very visable and the graphics were very helpful. Sorry to have missed the "outdoor free flying" of the raptors.

Beautiful view of the city. It was a great way to spend half a day. It would be a good place to take children, like a zoo but limited to only AZ
