Beautifully designed building sits in the foothills by the university. The museum is laid out so you flow seamlessly from floor to floor. There are also plenty of interactive elements for children and adults to play with. It's a great place to visit for the day and there are numerous paths just outside the museum for hiking, a quick stroll or to let the kids get some energy out.

Run of the mill museum. There were some interesting exhibits (loved the ant farm!) but overall it was pretty average. For the price it was a nice time. I'd skip a repeat visit.

Where can you take a family of five for $47 and see a gecko live exhibit, learn about all the different species of geckos, see a dinosaur exhibit and many many more wonderful educational things??? Only at the NHMU, I highly recommend for all ages and interests.

The building itself is gorgeous and the displays are breathtaking in scope and detail. If you want to see the entirety of the Salt Lake Valley, this is the place to do it from. From here, you get to see it all, including the Great Salt Lake itself. You can't say you visited Salt Lake City unless you've come here. If you have kids that watch the PBS show "Dinosaur Train" and see 'Dr. Scott, the Paleontologist,' he works out of the University of Utah. Of course, this building is very new and he was part if that show a while ago. But he was at least part of why this building exists.

Fancy modern building and interesting exhibits. However, I felt there were relatively few exhibits. Took me an hour and a half to get through all floors reading the displays half the time and perusing the other half. Moderately kid friendly. Overpriced admissions.

Nice place, free for UofU students, and great view from the top. Can take solid 4 hours if you're interested in seeing anything. But, life-size model of dinosaur is simply the biggest attraction.

According to Lonely Planet, here is best place in SLC. Adult, Kids and Backpacker everyone enjoy and experience in museum about 2hours. Additional entrance fee is $13(adult).

Fantastic for young and old. It seemed like most things in the museum were there to touch and interact with. We took over 5 hours to skim through the museum and it kept our children interested and engaged the whole time. It would take longer to really see everything.
