We spent about 2 hours here, moving through the whole place at a medium pace. Someone who wants to read a lot more could easily spend 3 or 4 hours here. For starters, the building itself is a treasure (views from the fifth floor deck are worth the price), and the exhibit is laid out so you can start on the fifth floor and amble your way back down. Very modern and airy. There was neat stuff on Indians, animals, and geology, but the standout here is the dinosaur exhibit. Turns out Utah's had several major finds, some of which have made their way here. Again, really well labeled and stunningly laid out. Worth the visit with an 11year old.
