    Take a journey through Utah’s natural history at the new Natural History Museum of Utah. Celebrate Utah’s native people and cultures, explore thousands of new artifacts and learn about Utah’s unique and extraordinary environments.

    Hands-on learning is a huge part of the new Museum. Children and adults alike will get the opportunity to experience Utah’s past in a whole new way. Enjoy the amazing views from large windows and terrace overlooking the valley and surrounding mountains. And outdoor enthusiasts can stop in after a hike on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail for a boost of energy with a snack from our café.

    Outdoor patios allow for a relaxing time to take in the beauty of the Salt Lake Valley, and our Museum Store allows you to take a little bit of history home with you.
