Natural History Museum Of Utah - Review

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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Salt Lake City Itinerary 3 Days.

  • This is a great museum. One of my favorite installments is a replica of the the Salt Lake Valley that lets you fill and drain water to see the different levels of Lake Bonneville/Great Salt Lake over time. Cool enough. But even better is that the installment sits in front of a panoramic window that overlooks the actual valley and lake, so you can look out on the real landscape and envision what you're simulating. That exhibit sums up what makes the museum so good--it's very interactive and tightly integrated with the surrounding landscape. Highly recommend a visit for kids or adults.

  • We have gotten annual memberships 3 years running now and probably hit this place at least 15 times a year. The kids never get board as there are several play areas throughout the museum and it is awesome to stop at the paleontology lab and see them scratch away at account fossils. Many times the paleontologists will have pieces of paper up that explain what they are working on and have to screens installed so you can see what they are looking at through the microscope. Every year they bring in a new interesting exhibit. This year's is called nature's machines and who's the adaptations animals have that slow then to survive with tons of interactive displays. There observation deck on the top floor offers some of the best bites of the salt lake valley. This would be great for a date or with kids. It is a shame it is a 70 minute drive to get here, but it is worth it! If you found this review helpful, please click "Like" below.

  • Fun place for family, I went as a student but personally feel it’s a little pricey. That said there is quite a bit to do. There is an awesome observation deck you can look over the whole valley. Kids love the dinosaurs. And all the touchable exhibits. There is a lot of hands on learning. It shares history about local Indian tribes. They do cycle different parts in and out bud doesn’t change frequently.

  • Great place to learn about local history and geology. This is free for students (just go to the font desk and show your UID and give them your zip code). This museum would be a lot of fun with little kids because there is quite a lot of hands on activities. The view from the Museum is great too. If the deck is open (it was closed due to snow when I was there) I recommend taking picture of the city from here.

  • Very cool museum with so much to see! I spent 5 hours here and still didn't see it all. They have everything from dinosaurs, to weather, to DNA, to the cosmos. It's a beautiful building with a wonderful view of the salt lake valley. It is a stunning venue to have a wedding at. Highly recommend coming here.
