old museum directory
The Utah Division of Arts & Museums invites you to discover Utah’s museums through a variety of exhibits and programs our museums have to offer. More than 260 Utah museums offer you a rich and diverse experience in a wide range of subjects, from art, culture, and history, to science, botanical gardens, and zoos. This directory has divided Utah museums into six regions, with cities listed alphabetically in each region: Wasatch Front, Northern, Eastern, West Desert, Central, and Southwest.
