  Natural History Museum of Utah

The Natural History Museum of Utah is a premier visitor attraction and active research institution located on the campus of the University of Utah. There are thousands of rare and fascinating artifacts on display that highlight Utah’s incredible history, from ancient epochs ruled by dinosaurs to the modern day. Breathtaking galleries, outside terraces, and interactive exhibits tell the stories of Utah’s native peoples, past and present, and reveal how the state’s world-famous landscapes were formed. Guests can explore at their own pace—and talk with Museum experts and guides as they go.


Housed in the Rio Tinto Center on the foothills above Salt Lake City, the Museum’s awe-inspiring architecture and the treasures it contains offer a Utah experience not to be missed.
