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.

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.

Great place to visit in town. Bonneville Shoreline trail is nearby, so is Red Butt Garden. Plenty of paleontological exhibits that are native to Utah. Very nice and modem facility. All in all great place especially for families with curious kids.

Honestly the most beautiful building ive ever seen. Amazingly clean and well displayed. It has some unique ways of explaining or displaying exhibits so you get the most of the experience. Also a lit of interactive exhibits.

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.

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.

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.

Chocolate festival was awesome and the place is neatly organised. Best of all u of u students get in free. I wish the parking was better though.
