The Desert Night Life event provides an unique opportunity to visit the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum in the evening. The museum regularly has evening hours in the summer, but this event is the first time the museum is doing an evening event in the spring. The event can be enjoyed on its own with regular museum admission or can be combined with attending the Jessie Colter concert, which is a separate ticket that includes museum admission.
