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.

This place is really pretty. It's everything a museum should be. It has a lot of interesting exhibits and the atmosphere is great. Also, it's up on the hill so you can see the entire valley if you look out the window. Don't expect it to be the biggest museum you've ever seen though. It's a pretty good size, but I kinda wish it was bigger. I could still spend all day in there, though.

Fantastic dinosaur exhibitions. Hands on exhibis. Unique architecture of the building. We did the whole museum in 3 hours but could have spent even more time here.

Fantastic museum experience, very innovative interior layout without defined levels. More than worth the price of admission, and you'll learn something new every time.

The Natural History Museum has some of the best architecture in Salt Lake City. Along with a few other local staples, this museum is certainly a must-stop for people visiting SLC. Cost is comparable to other museums and you can expect to spend at least a couple of hours checking out the many exhibits. During the warmer months, the roof presents some of the best views of the entire valley that SLC offers. Don't miss it.

Displays were fun for 6 year old, but cost is outrageous. $22 for me to take my grandson for two hours. Who do you think your audience ought to be, those already educated who can afford it or perhaps those who should learn more about science who may not be able. Too damn elitist.

This is a really well done natural science museum. Set in a beautiful, modern building, there's four floors of permanent exhibits and a large special exhibition space. This museum excels tying the history and science into the Utah history geography. It is really a must for any resident of the area or anyone who wants to learn more about the region.

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.
