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.

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.

I enjoyed the detailed displays, and friendly staff. Very modern (and new) museum, with a great selection of "Utah specific" geology, animal and human history.

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.

The dinosaurs here are amazing they also have a lot of fun games to play. I was just a blast. I would recommend anyone go here.

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.

I was sent to Salt Lake City on business and went out of my way to spend a couple of hours at the museum. Without a shadow of a doubt, it was the highlight of my entire week. While I spent a mere two hours at the museum, I could have easily hung around for the entire day. There's so much to see and do that you should allow yourself with ample time to visit every room/floor/exhibit. The dinosaur fossils were awe-inspiring and unlike anything I have ever experienced in person. It was worth the price of admission alone. For 13 dollars, you simply should not pass up this incredibly fascinating museum.
