We stopped at the Museum of Curiousity and were more than impressed! My 1.5 yo son and 3.5 yo daughter both had a lot of fun. I imagine that the place would be a zoo in the summertime, but the fall was lovely. The museum itself has tons of things for the kids to explore, plus a playground, pond to feed fish and fabulous fountains for splashing in. This will be a stop on every trip we take in the future. Worth every penny!
Nice, but very pricey ($20 per adult, per museum and there are three separate ones) if just passing through. Kids will love the dinosaurs and farms!
This place is amazing. The gardens are so beautiful and the farm, dinosaur museum and the kids museum are all incredible.
WOW we visited just the Museum of Curiosity for 6 hours and only saw half of the exhibition. Perfect for kids 2-11. Very tactile. Bring wet wear for play in the outdoor fountains. Kids 8-14 can enjoy the high ropes course walking three stories above the exhibitions. A little pricey unless you know someone with an annual pass that can get you a discount (Thank you Mary!). TRULY large indoor playground with tubes, slides, giant rope bridges. little mini city with blocks, green screen, Claymation video maker. splash pad has giant Noah's ark spraying water making puddles. Outdoor zip line and playground. Just tons of options. Could send another two days at the farm and dinosaurs.
Closed on Sunday
Came here for the gardens, which were beautiful! Their gardens were very large and you could easily spend a few hours exploring the different parts. You can even rent a golf cart if you don't feel like walking the entire property.
I loved it here s much. We rented Segways and had a blast riding around the entire park. It was beautiful!
This place is amazing. You need a whole day. We have to stop any time we road trip near here. We have a museum memberships back home that gets us in. Otherwise it is quite speedy.
We stopped at the Museum of Natural Curiosity while staying in Lehi in July- this is a huge warehouse childrens' museum that is jam packed full of kids. If your kids don't do well in large crowds then don't come in the summertime! It is a fun place you could spend all day at- but my kids don't do well in large crowds of crazy children so we only stayed a little bit.
