Traveling Treasures


For over 16 years, The Natural History Museum of Utah and Zions Bank have worked together on Traveling Treasures, a robust annual outreach partnership designed to bring the state museum of natural history, and its collections, into  Utah’s diverse communities. Every year, a team of educators, exhibit designers, bank personnel, and museum volunteers together  create a new traveling  exhibit which explores an intriguing aspect of the natural history of the state, region or planet.

During its time on the road each year, Traveling Treasures visits up to 12 cities and hosts family festivals and packed community lectures throughout the state. This community programming allows the Natural History Museum of Utah to connect with Utah’s communities statewide. From Layton, Panguitch, and Richfield to Duchesne, Tooele and North Ogden.
