“amazing architectural design and history”

The Natural History Museum of Utah illuminates the natural world and the place of humans within it. Located on 17-acres adjacent to Red Butte Garden, the Natural History Museum of Utah serves as the trailhead to Utah for residents and visitors alike.  The site overlooks the Salt Lake Valley and is a part of the University of Utah's Research Park. Building the Museum on this site enables a visitor experience thatencompasses both the indoors and the outdoors. Selecting the architects and the exhibit designers at the same time facilitated an integrated building and exhibit design.  At several points throughout the galleries, visitors are able to stop and view the local landscape from unique and often new perspectives. While other natural history museums may interpret weather or the water cycle, visitors to the Rio Tinto Center are able to watch dramatic weather and storms roll through the Salt Lake Valley.  And often times enjoy amazing sunsets!
