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.

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).

This is a very small Museum but a great one to visit. The Building it is in is beautiful but mostly offices. The collection though is amazing and lots and lots of Native American and anthropology artifacts. While it may be small there are good...More

Not a huge place to explore, but we went to a free event they did with refreshments & activities. Family friendly & educational. Definitely worth a visit or two!
