An architectural marvel and a case study in "green" design created by community generosity; we welcome you to the Natural History Museum of Utah at the Rio Tinto Center.


Construction Update

"The design team has created a building that is certain to inspire, excite and educate the community and its visitors about the natural world," says Sarah George, UMNH Executive Director. "With the new design, people will be able to connect with the wild lands backed up against the heritage preserve, the valley, the basin and the Rockies."
