Natural History Museum of Utah | Rio Tinto Center | 301 Wakara Way, Salt Lake City

See more of the Museum as you explore the off-limits areas of NHMU during our annual Behind the Scenes weekend. For two days only, we open the doors to the “back of house” for a look at the amazing objects held in stewardship for the people of Utah. Meet the scientists whose work helps grow these collections, learn about current research, and get an insider’s view of the Museum. 

Help us celebrate this Museum and its collections that exists because of your support and will benefit Utah's future generations.
