Natural History Museum of Utah + Giveaway

Just a little warning...I may have not taken any pictures with my nice camera, and so you have to endure Instagram photos for this post.
 
Devin and I were invited to a fun blogger tour of the Natural History Museum of Utah. We had never been to the new Museum, and were excited for a fun date. I have to say on a scale of 1 to awesome...it was heavy on the awesome. Within the first few minutes, I was feeling disappointed I didn't let Savannah get out of school to come.
I was worried Devin might get bored, and that there wouldn't be enough hands on stuff for him...boy was I wrong. His favorite area of the museum was definitely the "Our Backyard" area. It is geared for his age group, and is stocked with everything that a little boy {or girl} can have fun with.
When our sweet tour guide talked about all the different events they offer, I perked right up when she mentioned Family Sleepovers. How fun would that be to sleep inside the Natural History Museum among the big dinosaurs!? I think Savannah and I just might have a date night planned in March! :)
 
Other fun events you will find at the Natural History Museum...
  • Bug Brigade: A chance to handle live bugs and learn about their behavior and ecological roles. It is the second and fourth Saturday from 2 to 4pm.
  • Science Movie Night: Free film screening, and a fun discussion afterwards. It is the second Tuesday of each month.
  • Utah’s Animals: Children are introduced to local animals and ecosystems {see above picture}. It is the first and third Saturday of every month from 2 to 3pm.
  • Birthday Parties: Science themed parties, and they do all the work...sounds fabulous, right?

Have you been to the Natural History Museum of Utah since they opened the new one? Why didn't anyone tell me I was missing out on such a fabulous place!?

Want to go to the Museum? You are in luck, they are giving away a family 4 pack to one of my awesome readers! :)

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Giveaway will end next Wednesday, November 14th. Reader will be contacted via email.

Disclosure: NHMU let us tour the museum for free, but my opinion is mine. Preeesh.
