fun and interesting!

A great place to take the kids or a youth group. They have worked hard to make the museum educational and fun.

For the price, this is a great venue. When you need a stop or short activity that will create lasting memories, stop here! I lived here three years before stopping into this venue --WOW was I shocked at the display. Kids can get really close to both bones and artifacts.

Due to the Lehi Round Up parade seeing this museum closed for some of the day admission was half price ($2) so we thought this visit to be great value. I always like learning about the unique personality of a town and despite the fact that Lehi 2016 is a friendly happy place apparently it was quite the wild location... More

Our family of 4 got in for $14. I was skeptical when we pulled up and saw how small the building was, but everybody enjoyed the visit to the John Hutchings museum. It has a variety of exhibits ranging from war veterans to rocks & minerals to dinosaur fossils to local 1800's legends such as Porter Rockwell. The exhibits had... More

A great little field trip for kids, lots of historical items. For those who may enjoy pioneer history or minerals.

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

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) -...
