The Box Elder Museum is located in the basement of the Senior/Community Center in Brigham City, Utah. While it isn't a large museum it does bring in outstanding pieces and, best yet, it's free to tour! The current display (fall 2016) features local plein air pieces from local artists; I learned a lot from an impromptu conversation with one of... More

They had a nice early American exhibit. Then price is right... Free. These folks put in a lot of effort and time to make a very nice small exhibit for the city.

Lots of geology and pre-historical exhibits, artwork and displays. Great collection of fossils, rocks and gems including flourescent rocks. Tour guides are local geologists and very knowledgeable.

I absolutely LOVED visiting this museum! We just happened by it and ended up staying for about an hour and a half. We couldn't get enough, it was probably longer. The museum part of the center wasn't even open yet and the lady at the desk got right up and opened it for us. She was nice and informative. The... More

This is in an old school, now a rec. center. Ask at the front desk to see the museum and the clerk will unlock the hall and 4 rooms of the collections. One room focuses on Box Elder County mining only, but the other rooms have rocks, minerals, and fossils or their copies from around the world. Geologists and rock... More
