This museum has a small physical footprint, but it has some nice, engaging, hands-on activities. I think an hour is about all you can spend here unless your kids are really into anthropology and archeology. Current activities are building pottery with rings of different sizes,...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.

I learned while I was there that students put together all of the displays each semester for a class. They choose which objects from an enormous collection to display for that time and write up all of the descriptions. It's small, but well done. I'll...More

We stopped by the BYU Museum of Peoples and Cultures. The building is set back from the road (a big parking lot in front of it.). There are some very nice cultural and people related exhibits at this small museum. Admission is free. There is...More

Teachers and educators- this museum rents out amazing travel trunks! We were shocked with all the artifacts and information that was packed into a huge rolling bin. Costumes, natural science samples, cultural artifacts, books, etc. Only downside was VHS videos- we couldn't use them. But...More

All the "Museum's are fascinating and very informative but out of all of them I felt this was probably the least accurate as I knew it from a broad range of education and study. It is still something to try and fit in, and most...More

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!

This is a very small museum, so don't plan in staying more than 30 minutes. Exhibits vary constantly, since it is meant primarily as a curator-training experience for BYU students. But the staff is friendly and eager to answer questions and interact with kids. Depending...More
