The International Wildlife Museum was able to host its annual Winter Wonderland event in a safe manner that allowed kids the opportunity to play games, make crafts and see Santa along with a surprise visit from the Grinch!

Winter Wonderland was held on December 19th, 2020. The games and photos with Santa were stationed outside the museum to allow visitors more spacing and fresh air. Luckily our nice desert weather gave us a 65-degree day – beautiful for being outside!

Craft tables were located throughout the museum with extra tables placed around each area to allow visitors to spread out.

Throughout winter break, the Museum hosted ornament making workshops to make reindeer and snowmen ornaments and also held live animal encounters to encourage visitation.

On December 30th, families attended Wild Noon Year at the museum. Kids made noisemakers and other New Year’s crafts to take home, wore party hats and beads and participated in an outdoor confetti pop at noon to ring in the new year.

The Museum looks forward to a new year of fun events and workshops for families.

The International Wildlife Museum, located in Tucson, Arizona is excited to bring sustainable-use conservation messages, in a normal year, to 50,000 visitors each year with nearly half of them school-aged children.  Visitors and campers gain an awareness and understanding about how SCIF contributes to wildlife conservation around the world and how these conservation achievements would not be possible without the contribution of hunters.
