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.
