The new exhibit is great. It is very well done with good flow and great exhibits. The kids loved all the animals and they were will done. the building has good flow so your don't feel like your are stepping all over people. It is also not really big and perfect size for younger kids.

Take a trip to BYU and find out what it is and how great an experience even if you did not go to school there. Visit the book store and get a sweatshirt too.

This is the perfect sized museum for kids with short attention spans and parents who want kids to see cool things but don't have hours to do so. There are lots of dinosaurs, murals, descriptions, etc. but the coolest thing is the big window at the back where you can watch paleontologists at work. Notice the Calvin and Hobbs comics... More

If you are looking for something to do that is FREE, go here my kids love to play with all the science stuff and look at all the rocks. You can spend an hour or two with your kids and no spend a dime.

This museum is outstanding. Its collection of Jurassic Dinosaur skeletons is one of the largest in the world. It also houses many ice-age era relics. Most of the skeletons are stacked behind the museum in a warehouse that is sort of like a dinosaur Costco. Within the museum is a working dinosaur excavation shop. You are able to watch the... More
