Fodor's Review

An interesting student-curated collection of artifacts relating to cultures from all over the world is housed here. Clothing, pottery, rugs, weapons, and agricultural tools of Utah's Native American cultures are often on display. A permanent display includes artifacts from the first Provo Tabernacle that BYU students dug up a couple of years ago. The museum is scheduled to move to a new location in early 2015; call to check before visiting.

BYU's Best Kept Secret!

The Museum of Peoples and Cultures is an exceptional museum! The exhibitions had great overal themes and objectives. It is in a very unique building, that itself has history. It was actually the first male dormatory at Brigham Young University. The exhibitions are very professional and actually curated by BYU's Anthropology students. It is great for all ages and most importantly free! If you have Boy/Cub Scouts they can earn and activity patch and

qualify for the Archeological Merit Badge. My favorite part about the Museum of Peoples and Cultures is the block party they host the second week in May for Utah Pre-History and Heritage week. They close off the street in front of the museum, have Native dancing from all over the world and serve free food. Kids learn to make native crafts, make arrowheads and cordage and so much more. I highly recommend this museum! It is a gem!
