Visit Valley of the Moon


At Valley of the Moon, originally created in the 1920s, you’ll be whisked away to a storybook land like no other. Conveniently located at 2544 E Allen Rd., it’s sheer magic and a slice of paradise in the midst of Tucson. Visitors come for spiritual healing and to immerse themselves in the beauty of the area, and children quickly fall in love with the fairytale-like ambiance. The Valley of the Moon offers free admission on the first Saturday of the month, and hours can vary based on the weather.

Imagination and kindness is at the heart of Valley of the Moon’s mission. It’s no wonder that it’s become a historic landmark where respect, happiness and kindness are embraced. Created by George Phar Legler, the space is designed to heal the mind, body and soul. Particularly interested in engaging children, he began building the Valley of the Moon in 1917 soon after moving to Tucson from Indiana.

What Will You Discover?

Valley of the Moon is located on 2.25 acres and has its roots in the popular Spiritualism movement in the last turn of the century. Practitioners like Legler believe in spirits, fairies and the power of magnetism. Such practitioners have also included Walt Disney, so it’s clear that a belief in wonder and magic is at the heart of what they’ve created—and Arizona has long been a destination for those looking for spiritual well-being.

In addition to free first Saturdays, Valley of the Moon is also open by appointment. Private group visits offer historical tours for $100 for up to ten people and require a three-week advance notice. Popular with groups and large families, you don’t want to miss out on this magical exploration. Special events also take place, so keep an eye on the calendar when planning your visit.
