Outdoors and Picnic Area

The museum and art gallery are housed in Spanish Colonial Revival style buildings designed by noted Tucson architect Merritt Starkweather. Located among the wonderful rock formations of Texas Canyon visitors can experience the native plants, birds, and solitude of the high desert. A secluded picnic area with picnic tables and accessible restrooms offers a quiet retreat amidst the massive granite boulders of Texas Canyon. At times the picnic area will be reserved for special events.
Visitors can learn about the plants and geology of the grounds through self-guided walking tours.
