Details

G on Turquoise Trail Map: Built in 1900 as the Carnegie Library, this building has survived fire and the loss of much of its ornamentation. The massive bench at the front was designed by California architect Bernard Maybeck and sculpted by world-famous sculptor Benjamin Bufano in honor of Arizona’s pioneer settlers. Today, the building is home to the Children’s Museum Tucson, which offers many opportunities for educational play for children.
