We arrived at 3:15pm under the impression that the museum closed at 5pm. The museum website, other online sources, the sign on the door and one of the volunteers had the same misinformation. The museum closed at 4pm and we saw as much as we...More

What a collection! We were impressed with the wide variety of items that were exhibited. We found the museum quite impressive.

The museum has some nice prices,however whoever the curator is has never heard of overkill. Instead of displaying every item ever donated they need to select a few really good examples of each category. A real hodgepodge with nothing making an impression as a result

This is run by the Daughters of Utah Pioneers and is clean with excellent displays. We felt is was more oriented to the pioneer people that settled Utah than a collection of artifacts.

From furniture owned by Joseph Smith to a piano that was buried on the plains to preserve it to carriages to a two-headed goat to musical instruments from the 1800s, this museum has it. It's kind of like a very large small-town museum. Come ready...More

A fabulous museum that has loads of things to see from several decades of western pioneers. The basement includes a carriage house with numerous wagons while the upper floors contain everything from clothing to personal effects. A great place to spend an hour or more.
