We saw a display about the peoples of Bethlehem in Biblical times. We really liked it but there was nobody in the museum to ask questions of or explain anything.

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

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.

We stopped by the BYU Museum of Peoples and Cultures. The building is set back from the road (a big parking lot in front of it.). There are some very nice cultural and people related exhibits at this small museum. Admission is free. There is...More

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).
