I always enjoy seeing the musical instruments and I marvel to know that many of these were carted across the country in wagons. What great dedication to music!
My daughter enjoyed looking at the furniture and was so excited to find that one of the cribs held a pink blanket, just like one she owns.
The day we went, October 8, was the official Grand Opening and Re-dedication and the museum pulled out all the stops to make it a special day. The governor attended the ribbon cutting ceremony and special tours were given. People dressed in period costume were even on hand to answer questions.
There was even yummy food and drinks in the basement, the best stop in the eyes of my daughter.
I do wish the museum had more nicely arranged displays. Items are often crowded in their cases and not always given the interesting appeal they should be given. I often skip entire display cases because they just look too overwhelming to even stop and look. Even so, whenever I do stop and look, I find something to love. This museum is definitely one you should stop and visit, whether you have Utah pioneers in your history or not. It really tells the story of our state and the people who sacrificed to build up beautiful Utah.Follow Rebecca and all her quirky likes and travels at www.thrilledbythethought.com.
