Presidio San Agustin del Tucson 133 W. Washington, 10am-4pm
Southern Arizona Transportation Museum 414 N. Toole, 10am-5pm

Great way to see these art, history, science exhibits for free. Thanks to all the sponsors that made this happen for families and adults in Tucson, as I know there are normally fees at some of these museums (i.e. Science Downtown, Museum of Art, Children’s Museum Tucson, MOCA).
And read my other blog about all the rest of the events happening downtown on Feb. 10, 11, and 12 for the Arizona Centennial birthday celebrations (http://tucsoncitizen.com/community/2012/02/08/3-days-of-celebration-for-arizonas-100th-birthday-feb-10-11-12/).
