If you want to take your children to an amazing museum, go to the BYU Earth Science Museum. It's not huge, but it's very interesting. It might inspire your children to be more involved with science. Many great exhibits. And it's FREE!

It's a great place and very interesting too. It's great to go with family and group of kids too. It's free, so you don't have to worry with money.

I had been here over the past decade several times and each time I had the opportunity I always stopped in. They change displays as new or old things are discovered and learned and as I loved the subject matter I wouldn't have missed it for the world.

The new exhibit is great. It is very well done with good flow and great exhibits. The kids loved all the animals and they were will done. the building has good flow so your don't feel like your are stepping all over people. It is also not really big and perfect size for younger kids.

Take a trip to BYU and find out what it is and how great an experience even if you did not go to school there. Visit the book store and get a sweatshirt too.

This is the perfect sized museum for kids with short attention spans and parents who want kids to see cool things but don't have hours to do so. There are lots of dinosaurs, murals, descriptions, etc. but the coolest thing is the big window at the back where you can watch paleontologists at work. Notice the Calvin and Hobbs comics... More

If you are looking for something to do that is FREE, go here my kids love to play with all the science stuff and look at all the rocks. You can spend an hour or two with your kids and no spend a dime.
