Winter Events Keep Kids Busy at the International Wildlife Museum


The International Wildlife Museum hosted its biggest Winter Wonderland event and added two new events for kids over the Winter Break.

Winter Wonderland was held on December 7th and had 258 people attend! Kids could play games, make crafts, and take photos with Santa.

Before Winter Wonderland started, families attended Pancakes with Santa. This sold-out event hosted 65 people who ate pancakes and had time before Winter Wonderland to see Santa and take photos. Museum and SCI staff volunteered to cook pancakes for the attendees.

Since Pancakes with Santa was so popular, Santa visited the museum again for Cookies & Cocoa on December 23rd. Kids decorated cookies, visited with Santa and made Christmas crafts. There was also a cocoa bar where visitors could customize their hot cocoa with marshmallows, caramels, mint chocolate, sea salt and more toppings. 111 people attended this event!

On December 30th, families attended Wild Noon Year at the museum. Kids made noisemakers to take home, wore party hats and beads, got a bubbly drink and participated in a balloon drop at noon to ring in the new year. 85 people attended this event!

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

The International Wildlife Museum, located in Tucson, Arizona is excited to bring sustainable-use conservation messages to over 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.
