This is wonderful little place to explore the artifacts and exhibits of many native populations now long gone. It is fascinating and informative. A great place to take the kids and grandkids

Another fun free museum with interactive exhibits related to archaeology. Our kids loved the comics, using emojis to respond to the exhibits, playing a game to see what kind of adventurer they would be (Indiana Jones vs. Lara Croft), etc.. We happened to visit on...More

This museum has a small physical footprint, but it has some nice, engaging, hands-on activities. I think an hour is about all you can spend here unless your kids are really into anthropology and archeology. Current activities are building pottery with rings of different sizes,...More

There's one exhibit at a time here, but it's worth a stop while visiting the museums at BYU. Good for all ages, and the materials in the exhibit are quite interesting.

Teachers and educators- this museum rents out amazing travel trunks! We were shocked with all the artifacts and information that was packed into a huge rolling bin. Costumes, natural science samples, cultural artifacts, books, etc. Only downside was VHS videos- we couldn't use them. But...More

All the "Museum's are fascinating and very informative but out of all of them I felt this was probably the least accurate as I knew it from a broad range of education and study. It is still something to try and fit in, and most...More

If you're interested in archaeology or ancient culture, then you'll enjoy this tiny museum with its excellent displays and exhibitions (and they're educational).

This is a very small Museum but a great one to visit. The Building it is in is beautiful but mostly offices. The collection though is amazing and lots and lots of Native American and anthropology artifacts. While it may be small there are good...More
