Tips

  • Buy a membership! There is so much to see and do that you'll definitely want to come back. The kids (and adults) could spend several hours exploring the interactive exhibits and not get to it all.
  • Start at the 5th floor and work down.
  • Treats from City Cakes available at the cafe! :) :)
  • Check out the Gems & Minerals Exhibit in the O.C. Tanner Hall! Not that we're biased or anything.
  • Well worth the time. Look at everything and you will still miss a ton
  • Don't miss the Native Voices room in the back. You are greeted in the native tongues of Utah--Navajo, Ute, Paiute, Shoshone and Goshute.
  • I loved looking at all the dinosaur bones and taxidermy animals. Lots of things to look at, they definitely have something for everyone. A beautiful collection of native American clothing and pots
  • My 4 year old loves the dinosaurs. Great exhibit!
