Psst…. Wanna buy a museum? There is one for sale in Tucson. Brokers Jim Marian of Chapman Lindsey and George Larsen of Larsen Baker have teamed up to offer one of the most unique commercial properties ever marketed to the public in Tucson.
It is the World Wildlife Museum, owned by the Safari Club International Foundation. Says Larsen “This is a 40,000 sq.ft. castle, complete with a moat….nestled out on the scenic Gates Pass Road. There is a soaring glass atrium with a mountain in it. There is a commercial kitchen and a full size theater. There are executive offices and classrooms….and there are a lot of animals!”
Of course, the wildlife dioramas and exhibits will not be sold with the real estate but the indoor mountain might be! The Safari Club is considering moving its museum displays to a location in Atlanta. The Safari Club International will retain its office staff in Tucson.
Located 10 minutes from both the University of Arizona and downtown Tucson, this property has breathtaking views in the mountains that overlook the West side of Tucson. Property is zoned SR and is located on 11.37 acres of land. Broker Jim Marian explained that interest in the property has been high from schools and churches. “It is a unique property and very fairly priced, but we need to find just the right buyer, you know, someone who really needs a castle!”
