About Natural History Museum Of Utah, Salt Lake City

Treat yourself and your kids with a visit to this fascinating museum which takes you back millions of years to the time where nature thrived and man was only an accessory to an incredible world. The natural history museum is not concerned with the history of man or culture only but it concerns itself with the history of earth and its various phases of evolution. The Natural History Museum is set in 17 pristine acres at the foothills of Wasatch Mountain Range that makes for a befitting location for this fascinating museum. Homage to the glorious state of Utah, the presence of earth is palpable in the museum. The Past Worlds section and the section that showcases geological formations are particularly interesting, as are the dinosaurs fossils and the representation of the mysterious Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaurs Quarry phenomenon where 12000 fossil bones have been found.

  • Great place for all ages. Although not a children's museum, they're lots of kids specific attractions. Special event and holiday celebrations are great. noon new years Eve celebration is s lot of fun and s great way to celebrate the new year without staying up until midnight. parking is free, food and gifts available, restrooms, lots of seating throughout exhibit, wheelchair accessible everywhere, reasonable prices and discounts available... Fun fun fun.

  • Spend a great evening here exploring the main exhibit. Extensive artifacts with information given for all ages. The layout of the main exhibit was set up in chronological order which added an extra level of enjoyment for me. Also the phone app provides even more information perfect for a nerd who wants all the possible information they can get.

  • This relatively new, architect really stunning, completely energy efficient attraction is definitely worth it! The location is spectacular and provides amazing views of the valley day and night! The contrast of the very modern architecture against some of the ancient artifacts is a great juxtaposition. The shape of the building makes for a very natural flow for the tourist. I recommend starting at the top and slowly working back down. The dinosaur, Native American art, and gemstone exhibits were my personal favorites. I can see why this attraction is rated number 1 on TripAdvisor.

  • I am a member, and if you are around often, I recommend getting a membership. Especially if you have kids, there is definitely something for everyone here. They have special exhibits each year from March till early January. They have birthday parties, a cafe, a gift shop, and 5 floors of things to look at, hear, touch, and smell. There is an earthquake machine, models of the Great Salt Lake and its water sources, a floor on life (cells, genes, etc.), and your typical dinosaur fossils that are amazingly restored. There's an exhibit on Native Peoples, the weather, and the future world. If you're ever in Salt Lake, you need to come see this museum! Note: The picture features is from the Native Peoples exhibition.

  • Great place to learn about the natural history of Utah. Plenty of interactive exhibits for the family to learn from. The fourth floor has a station where kids are teaching other kids about arachnids, centipedes, millipedes, and other creepy crawlers. Plenty of dinosaur bones from species that lived in Utah. Plenty of taxidermy animals and a beautiful array of butterflies. You'll spend a good two to three hours here with the family, a date, it just yourself. Enjoy!
