Utah Museum of Natural History
Address: 1390 E. President Circle, Salt Lake City, Utah 84112
Nestled in the heart of a resource rich archaeological, paleontological and geological play land, our museum has much to offer in diverse prehistoric subjects.
One thing that makes our museum so unique is that our items on display were actually discovered within a stone’s throw of the actual museum location! Dinosaurs and other finds from this region are world-famous, but only here can you see them surrounded by their original context.
The other unique aspect is that we actually travel into the field and discover the dinosaurs, collect them from the field, prep them in our bone lab, and put them on display! With this advantage, we strive to bring the cutting-edge world of discovery directly to you.
Address: 155 East Main Street-Price, Utah

John Hutchings Museum of Natural History
Lehi's John Hutchings Museum of Natural History has its origins in its inquisitive founder, Mr. Hutchings. In 1955, Mr. Hutchings and his wife Eunice donated their vast collections of rocks, minerals, fossils, shells, stuffed birds, eggs, Native American artifacts, pioneer items, and Wild West guns and memorabilia to the non-profit Museum corporation to be held in trust for the people of Lehi. The collection has continued to grow as friends of John Hutchings have donated their collections to the Museum.
The Hutchings Museum is a hands-on teaching Museum and now has many new interactive, touch, and feel exhibits. Add the personal attention of our knowledgeable docents and you will find we have become a dynamic place that students won’t forget.
Address: 55 North Center, Lehi, UT 84043
