Tucson Rodeo Parade Museum


Part museum, part rental hub, the Tucson Rodeo Parade Museum has a variety of parade vehicles for rent from wagons to buggies and carriages to flatbeds. Of course, you don’t need to be participating in a parade to rent a vehicle. Why not rent a one-horse buggy or a four-horse coach for your special event? If you’re not in the market for a rental, you can always stop by the museum and catch up on the unique history of parades in Tucson.

There are over 100 horse-drawn carriages on display, as well as an exhibition on what Tucson in the 1900s was really like. The Tucson Garden Railway Society helped to expand the display railroads to include a ‘G’ gauge model steam locomotive that’s fully functional along with a diorama of Tucson during the train heyday of the 1880s.

A Museum for All Ages

Kids love the cattle sounds, mission bells, Mexican music and honky-tonk saloon music found here. It’s a real gem that recreates Tucson when the trains first arrived! You’ll also discover the beginning of the Tucson Rodeo Parade, which began in 1925. Get a close look at the Clyde Pierce collection and the Fringe Top Surreys which were used in the film version of Oklahoma.

Visit the old airport hangar to see the town’s first chemical fire wagon, freight wagons, sleighs, the area’s first garbage truck and circus vehicles. Also on display is vintage farm and ranch machinery with related tools. You can even climb aboard an old cotton seeder. Open Monday – Saturday on the old Tucson Rodeo grounds, tickets are just $10 for adults and $7 for children.
