We enjoyed seeing in 3D the feature film about the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. We loved seeing it in the IMAX theatre.

Really nice, somewhat small but very educational location. The free portion extends on 2 floors and there is also an IMAX theater (which does cost money but not a lot).

The planetarium is free. All you have to do is pay for the movie. There are a lot of interactive things to do and look at. Plenty of available parking and the price is reasonable. Great family time.

The museum was a fun stop after spending the day on Temple Square. We grabbed the light rail (free) from Temple Square to get there. Spent about an hour in the exhibits. Great for no charge!
