Natural History Museum of Utah + Giveaway

This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are mine..and well the kids that went with me too!

We were lucky enough to be invited to the Natural History Museum of Utah to take one of their highlights tours, and see the traveling Geckos Live! Exhibit. This is one of those adventures we haven't done often, and it was quite the treat!
The Highlights Tours cost a couple of extra dollars on top of admission, but we really enjoyed it. Maybe because we haven't visited this museum a lot, or maybe it was our awesome tour guide. Either way, we would spend the money to do it again! Our tour guide told us so many fun facts that we would have never known otherwise. Our favorite fact was that she told us which dinosaur bones were real, and which ones were casts. The tour only runs for about an hour, so we were still able to go and explore the museum on our own.
The Natural History Museum of Utah has 10 permanent galleries, and as if that wasn't enough they bring in at least 2 traveling exhibits a year. The current one is the Geckos Live! which will be there until May 1st, 2016...and should not be missed. We loved that every gecko habitat had a number on it, so you had to find that many geckos inside. Not as easy as it sounds with some of those little critters. With 55 different geckos the kids were absolutely amazed.  They surprised us with a special behind the scenes look at what they feed the geckos, gecko eggs that are waiting to hatch, and they even took a couple out of their habitats for us to touch. It was awesome!
You know what I really loved about this museum? I have a wide variety of ages in my kids, and there was something for each of them! Sabrina loved the cute little Our Backyard exhibit, Devin loved all the dinosaurs, Savannah loved the gems and minerals. There really was something for everyone.
So, now to the good part. The Natural History Museum was generous and gave me a family 4 pack of tickets to giveaway to one of my readers! Take a looksie at the rafflecopter below.
