  • Employees can tour Historic Courthouse Visitor Center

    The Southern Arizona Heritage and Visitor Center, located inside the Historic Courthouse, opens its doors Jan. 18-19 and County employees are invited to be among the first to experience this exciting new space. Stop by, look around, say hello to our volunteers and staff and enjoy this beautiful new project created for Pima County residents and visitors.

    Starting Saturday, Jan. 18, the Visitor Center will open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Come see the interactive exhibits featuring our region’s nature, culture, food, history, water, recreation and innovation, a topographic map, brilliant diorama of the Sonoran Historic Courthouse tourDesert, theatre, gallery and gift shop that collectively represent all that we love about Pima County. The gift shop is the new home for popular Loop jerseys and merchandise, which includes regional items of interest including books, notecards, jewelry, food items and toys for kids.

    In the near future we will be reaching out to County staff to help us showcase and share with visitors what makes Pima County such a special place through scheduled programming in the Visitor Center. We envision having our own subject matter experts give demonstrations and special talks to enrich the visitor experience. 

    In addition, there will be three conference rooms open for County staff use. These likely won’t be available for reservation until early summer. We will keep you posted in an upcoming issue of eScoop. 
    Employees may park free of charge in the El Presidio Garage by showing their employee ID. Garage hours are 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. with entrances closing at 4 p.m.

    The Southern Arizona Heritage and Visitor Center is located at 115 N. Church Avenue, Suite 101. House are 10 a.m.-5 p.m., seven days a week (with exception of major holidays). Check them out online at visitsouthernarizona.com.
