CLOSED FOR RENOVATION. So disappointed. We were here on our last time through Salt Lake City about 2 years ago. This museum is a real gem that we were looking forward to revisiting.More

Keep you eye open for certain exhibits as this museum is a local gem. It is currently being renovated so you'll have to catch it next time.

Thanks, giovannonislc! When we reopen in 2017 look for new permanent exhibitions of our European, Asian, African, American, regional, and modern and contemporary collections—as well as exciting temporary exhibitions of important work from around the globe. We can't wait to welcome you back.

My daughter and I enjoyed going to the museum on a cold winter day. We practically had the place to ourselves and it was fantastic!

This is not a large museum but I enjoyed my visit. The building itself is quite artistic with a huge flight of stairs and a room of ribbons hanging from the ceiling. Though I am not really that into art I liked it.More
