Natural History Museum of Utah reviews
At first glance thus museum appears small and kinda dull. But once you get into the exhibits it is immersive and informative! So much information on the area and culture! It took us 4 hours to visit..... more »
This is a GREAT museum. We saw the traveling exhibit on ancient Egypt which was wonderful. The displays are very well done and just a great place to wander and learn. more »
This is one of my favorite Utah museums. The exhibits are always carefully thought out so that folks of all ages and knowledge levels can come and learn something new. Their dinosaur collection is awesome. One cool thing I noticed this time around was that some of the exhibits have a little "smell me" button that you can push and scented air comes out, which adds another level of immersion to the experience. I would recommend this place to families with children, college students, people looking for an interesting date night, and tourists hoping to learn a bit more about our state and the world.
My husband Jason and I had an amazing time. Our favorite was the Dinosaur exhibit. The Dinosaurs were displayed well. It was also interesting to watch the process of dinosaur bones being pieced together and examined in a laboratory setting right there in the museum. The volunteer, Sharon, was knowledgeable and talked to us about the dinosaurs and Yellowstone and even recommended a scenic route to drive there. Her recommendations made our trip to the Museum and Yellowstone a memorable one. Date visited: Tuesday September 10, 2019
