Natural History Museum of Utah‑Rio Tinto Center

Recommended
The Natural History Museum of Utah Rio Tinto Center seems to have been dug right out of the hillsides and features staggered terraces and an exterior façade of reflecting copper and glass sheets evoking the canyons and arches of Utah. The 4000m2/13123ft2 exhibition area provides the visitor with a great deal of information on the state's flora and fauna in an amusing, interactive manner. The staging of some of the dinosaur galleries is worthy of Jurassic Park.
