If you want to take your children to an amazing museum, go to the BYU Earth Science Museum. It's not huge, but it's very interesting. It might inspire your children to be more involved with science. Many great exhibits. And it's FREE!

Take a trip to BYU and find out what it is and how great an experience even if you did not go to school there. Visit the book store and get a sweatshirt too.
