This musuem is full of many interesting pioneer treasures. I really like that the museum has some of the possessions and even a lock of hair from my great-grandmother who lived to be 108, Utah's last living pioneer who crossed the plains.

The Daughters of Pioneers Museum is strategically located right next to the Utah State Capitol Building just north of Temple Square. Admission is free and the museum hosts one of the best collections of pioneer-era memorabilia for museums of its kind. Plan at least an hour for a quick tour (3 hours to peruse everything).

The museum is run by the International Society Daughters of Utah Pioneers (which bases its headquarters out of this building). The DUP (as it's called) works hard to preserve historical sites and landmarks as well as collecting artifacts of historical value.

This ethic is very evident in the contents of the museum which also houses a collection of photographs of each Governor of Utah since its inception. In fact, the wide array of photos in the museum is one of its most striking posessions.

The museum is open Monday - Saturday year-round from 9-5 and you can look for neighborhood parking just a block or so north of the museum. Contributions are accepted by the museum (a barrel sits just inside the entrance to the 1st exhibit room where you can place your gift).

I give the museum 3 stars out of 5.
