Local museum, but worth the time to check it out

We visited the John Hutchings Museum on a whim. It's kind of small and out of the way, but for a local museum not financed by a university or a state, it is worth dropping in and... read more

We visited the John Hutchings Museum on a whim. It's kind of small and out of the way, but for a local museum not financed by a university or a state, it is worth dropping in and checking it out. First, it's not just a natural history museum. There are a number of historical artifacts that are unique to the... More

Great collection of dinosaur & Fossil. If you get past the town of Lehi make a stop and visit this interesting museum.

Other cities in the US can learn from this museum. Though the building is not very big, it has a massive collection of artifacts and nature. Hope you can coordinate your visit with one of the events or workshops but if not, you will still feel your time was well spent here. The gift shop was pretty cool too.

We almost turned around when we saw it would cost $66 for us all to get in, but we discovered it was well worth it. For a smaller museum, it was amazing to see the quantity and variety of dinosaur fossils they had. We could have stayed there easily 3 or more hours. This museum should rank as one of... More

I've been to many of the famous Dinosaur museums in Europe, New York, Washington D.C. and other places. This museum is by most people vastly underestimated, because: - alone the entrance hall has more complete fossils (20+) than many, many others - both complete fossils and full sized models are abundant - great interactive plays for kids (sand streams) -...

Very glad we stopped here. A family of 6 can get in for $12! With a 2 & 4 yr old, we were able to keep them entertained for a good hour w hands on activities. If we were visiting without the kids, I could probably spend hours here looking at the rock & mineral collection. Lots of good stuff... More

Small but all the exhibits are top notch. A must for all dinosaur lovers. The Imax movies are also good.

I have been to this museum numerous times in my life being from the area. So much to look at so plan on 2-3 hours especially if you have kids. Great place to learn about local history as well as natural. Don't forget to admire the building itself.

Great museum, couldn't really ask for more. The kids will definitely enjoy this place. I suggest making sure you have lots of time to enjoy the place.

I've been going here since I was a little girl. It's always delightful! The geology section has some neat exhibits, but my favorite has to be the section about the various wars that soldiers from the area fought in. There are displays of uniforms, letters, and other neat artifacts. Check it out!

Thank Moonery
