Free Museum Day Hooray!

Hooray for a free day at the Natural History Museum of Utah. Yep, that's right. It was Museum Day on Saturday so Joe and I took advantage of that and brought Russell out to his first Museum. Museum Day is put on by Smithsonian magazine. This is what they say about the free day:
In the spirit of Smithsonian Museums, who offer free admission everyday, Museum Day Live! is an annual event hosted by Smithsonian magazine in which participating museums across the country open their doors to anyone presenting a Museum Day Ticket...for free.
There were an assortment of museums that were participating but I had heard good things about the Natural History Museum so we decided to go there. I must say it was a great experience. The museum itself is very beautiful and has an assortment of exhibits. I loved that there was plenty there for adults to read and appreciate but there were also kid friendly exhibits to help keep kids amused. I can see this as a great place to bring Russell once he's bigger.

Free = awesome!

We loved the view from the top of the Museum too. It would have been nicer if it were a little less hazy but it was still quite beautiful up there.

At the top of the world! Ok maybe not the world...

I remember going to museums as I grew up and even once I was older. I always love learning new things and experiencing things that are new and interesting. I still love dinosaurs and think seeing little glimpses of history is awesome. Yep I'm a nerd like that but it's good times. Even if I had to pay I'd recommend the Natural History Museum of Utah as a great place for families with kids. The whole place is very stroller friendly and when we went there were a boat load of families with kids. It never felt rushed or crowded though sometimes you may have to wait if you're looking for a specific photo op without random people in your picture. HA!

Daddy and the dinosaurs!

What's your favorite museum? Do you have any memories of museums from growing up?

So tired after seeing the Museum.
