The exhibit is great, very nice museum to bring young kids for science projects or just to learn about Utah natural history. Love the fact, there are some hiking trials just right outside of the facility. Recommend to check on price discount on the ticket from the web.

What a wonderful place to visit. I have been there twice. Both times have been amazing. If you want to do more than one attraction for the day, you can go across the way and go to Red Butte Gardens. Another wonderful place to walk and smell the roses and other flora and fauna.

Excellent exhibits, beautiful architecture, incredible surroundings. Our visit was on a holiday, so it was crowded, but not annoyingly so. Staff was friendly and helpful, the layout of the museum made sense and the exhibits were educational and interactive. We were beyond impressed!

DINOSAURS (we visited in mid-March 2014) We came to see all the dinosaurs-upstairs, downstairs, on the walls, everywhere. This place is big enough to keep up with the LA and SF natural history museums we've visited in California. This year my son is obsessed with dinosaurs so this was our first stop right off the plane. He loved the exhibits... More

In town for a business trip and decided to stop by the museum for a visit. It's well worth the admission price for the views alone. Great exhibits and I had a lot of fun walking around. There's a trail beside the museum that has great views of the city. My only regret is I didn't bring gym clothes to... More

This museum is a gem located in the foothills of Salt Lake City with a spectacular view. There so many neat exhibits throughout its 5 floors it would take a couple of visits to do it justice. And there are plenty of things for kids to do and learn so bring them along.
