What are the best indoor museums in Utah?

Our list of the best indoor winter activities in Utah is very museum-forward, because we happen to think our state is home to some of the best museums in the country! And during the cold of winter, there’s nothing quite like escaping into one of our museums for an afternoon. Here are some of our favorite museums in Utah:

  • Museum of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point. The Museum of Ancient Life claims to have the largest collection of full skeleton dinosaur displays in the world, and you’ll be amazed at the 60 complete mounted skeletons here. In addition to numerous displays, the museum is the workplace for real paleontologists and you can watch them work while you’re there!
  • Utah Museum of Natural History. This museum is chock-full of informative and entertaining exhibits about everything from geology to astronomy and beyond. If it exists (or has existed) in the natural world, you’ll find it here. Learn about Utah’s first residents – the many species of dinosaurs who roamed the Beehive State. The museum houses dozens of reconstructed dino skeletons that help you imagine what these creatures were like millions of years ago.
  • Pioneer Memorial Museum. Located on Main Street in Salt Lake City is the Pioneer Memorial Museum, also known as the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers Museum. This museum is known for housing the world’s largest collection of artifacts on a single subject – the pioneers. The state of Utah and many of its charming small towns owe their existence to the pioneers. In 1847, the pioneers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints came into the Salt Lake Valley and worked tirelessly to make it their home. As you walk through this museum, you’ll find thousands of articles, displays, collections, and more that tell a story and showcase the life of these courageous individuals decades ago.
  • St. George Discovery Site at Johnson Farm. At the St. George Discovery Site at Johnson Farm, you can walk among thousands of fossilized dinosaur footprints. But that’s not all. At this incredible museum, you will see several life-sized models of dinosaurs, rare impressions, and more!
