‘Please Touch!’

New Utah museum leaps beyond old-school dioramas
The exterior of the new Natural History Museum of Utah at the Rio Tinto Center in Salt Lake City was designed to blend into the high foothills of the Wasatch Range. The museum is located on the University of Utah campus.
The Collections Wall and a topographical map in the floor are shown at the Natural History Museum of Utah.
Patrons make their way through the Native Voices Gallery at the Natural History Museum of Utah.
Museum-goers check out some of the exhibits. The museum, which opened last month, was built with a combination of public and private funding.
