Since we had time to spend in Provo, we decided to make a stop here. It is a small museum, but it is well designed. It was worth the time spent here.

Although this museum is very small they use their space well and it is packed with a lot of well- displayed stuff. It was late in the day or we might have stayed longer, but the half hour we were there was perfect for the...More

My grandson enjoyed watching the students working in the lab. We also enjoyed the display of minerals as well as the dinosaur bones. The building is older, not in the best repair. The coolers are noisy and one was leaking water on the floor. It...More
