Kitt Peak is really Cool, both intellectually and figuratively! The intellectual side is amazing. The Kitt Peak Visitor Center and Museum are packed full of fascinating exhibits, unbelievable photos of Galaxies and more. And, just so you know, this place is Freezing! It's located on the top of a mountain at an elevation of 6,875 feet. They will tell you it's cold, dress warm. BELIEVE THEM! We are originally from Alaska, and we froze our tails off up there.

The Visitor Center is open from 9AM till 3:45PM and there are guided tours at 10, 11:30 and 1:30. They request a $2 donation to visit the center and the guided tours cost $3.50 for adults and $2 for kids. They also have a very popular (reservations required) nightly viewing program. We went to that and really enjoyed it.

There are no services at Kitts Peak, be sure to gas up before heading out there, nearest gas is 16 miles away. There is a pay phone and a restroom at the peak but very limited food, so eat before going or pack a lunch (picnic areas available). Always be sure to call before going all the way out there, just to make sure that they are open.

Also Please Note: The use of Cell Phones is prohibited on the Mountain. They interfere with some of the Radio Telescopes up there.

Kitts Peak is a really fun day trip and the night program is fascinating. We have visited Kitts Peak a couple of times and will certainly go back. Great Fun and really neat stuff there!

Other popular Tucson Attractions include the Desert Museum located West of Tucson, Old Tucson Studios West of Tucson and the Pima Air & Space Museum on the South Side of Tucson.

Driving Directions: Kitt Peak is located a little over 50 miles southwest of Tucson in the Quinlan Mountains (about a 90 minute drive). Go South on I-19, Go West Ajo Highway (exit 99), You Keep Going & You Keep Going & You Keep Going & You Can't Miss It:-). Actually it's quite a ways out there, Pass thru Three Points, Stay on Ajo Highway, you'll see a big mountain ahead on your left, that's Kitt Peak and the observatory is on top of it. Keep going and you'll see the sign for Kitt Peak. You will turn Left and head up the mountain. MAP
