Kitt Peak National Observatory

Featuring the world’s largest collection of optical telescopes Kitt Peak National Observatory is located fifty-six miles southwest of Tucson on the Tohono O’odham Nation. The Kitt Peak Visitor Center is a non-profit educational organization. The visitor center uses earned income and donations to support its operation. There is no fee for admission to the visitor center; three daily docent-led tours of the major telescopes are offered for a fee.

Since its opening in 1964, the Kitt Peak Visitor Center has spent over 2 million dollars in purchasing crafts from Tohono O’odham artists. Today, the Kitt Peak Visitor Center continues this tradition, offering fine Tohono O’odham crafts to its visitors.
