BYU Museum of Paleontology

BYU Museum of Paleontology

The BYU Museum of Paleontology is one of the smaller museums around here, but that is exactly why I want to call attention to it. It isn’t crowded. It is free, but there is a donation jar where you can give your support. It on the BYU campus, open during the week from 9-5. Admittedly, this make it a bit harder to visit than other museums because you have to go when many kids are in school and parents are working. But that also makes it a quiet place. There are just a few rooms, but I feel the exhibits are well-done, and informative. There is a window into a working lab where you can see some of the BYU staff and/or students working on their research.

It doesn’t take too long to explore. As it is right on campus, it is a good place to stop in while visiting the other museums, or as part of any other activity in Provo.
