This is a very small museum, so don't plan in staying more than 30 minutes. Exhibits vary constantly, since it is meant primarily as a curator-training experience for BYU students. But the staff is friendly and eager to answer questions and interact with kids. Depending on the exhibit, it can be very interesting to so-so for adults.

Fun displays that make learning interesting. I have been to many museum's from all over the world and this was a very fun place to go. BYU did an amazing job gathering real information and facts about people and cultures. Says a lot about the school itself.

It's pretty cool, but not something that you need to go out of your way to see. Like other BYU attractions its a nice simple and generally dependable trip to make.

This was a very diverse exhibit and show cased what may seem at the present time to be rather ordinary things, but this really captures our time.

My wife and I actually went here for a theme date they sponsored. It was pretty fun and it was a good excuse to come and see the musem. There were some pretty cool exhibits. One visit probably suffices each time they change the exhibits.

I saw King Tut and various other traveling exhibits when they brought them in but they took a few key pieces out when they had the Rodin exhibit and that was very disappointing to see them deny us any of his wonderful artwork.

I really like this museum, but listed as #1 to do in Provo? really? That's pretty surprising. There are interesting exhibits, and the anthropology students are super involved in this museum, which is neat.

I have been to this museum multiple times. It is peaceful, and rustic. The docents and workers are more accessible and personable because of the museums size. The exhibits have many activities for young school children and activities that appeal to Brigham Young University students. The museum works hard to support the community and provide an intellectually uplifting experience for... More

The Museum has a couple of exhibits, but it provides activities for the community and helps you learn about the history of the local area. ------------------------------------- Find more info and other places to see at <a href="http://www.provohappening.com">provohappening.com</a>.

My introduction to the Museum of Peoples and Cultures was when I was a kid in home-school. My mom would take us to all the best educational exhibits in Utah Valley, and MPC was one of our regular trips. While the museum has activities for all ages, it is a great place to take kids. The kids have a chance... More
