  • This is a great museum, plenty of wonderful exhibits, and learning experiences. The live shows are great for children, and adults, and as always admission is free. I recommend donating to the museum every visit, so they can continue to offer this awesome experience.
  • Wonderful free place to explore and learn while getting out. I was told a few years back it was redone and added to. Looks great. Also a very small younger kids play area in the very back :)
  • Great natural history museum. Kid (and adult) friendly. Also, check out the fun gift shop. Admission is $FREE.99
  • Warning! If you're looking for an exhibit about Beans, you will be sorely disappointed! All this place has is incredibly preserved animals in exciting positions and habitats. I didn't see a single bean, although all the families and couples didn't seem to mind the lack; they looked like they loved seeing the animals and had fun in the small play place. I guess I can't be too upset, considering it was free. P. S. Watch out for the sinks, they're incredibly splashy!!
  • Actually one of my favorite sites on BYU Campus. There are lots of taxidermied animals (literally 100s), of all shape and sizes. My little boys couldn't get enough. Very cool, and free is great!
