Salt Lake City (May 2009)-Thanksgiving Point, located just south of Salt Lake in Lehi, is home to the region's botanical crown jewel and the Museum of Ancient Life, the largest dinosaur museum in the world. It is also the cultural gathering place for the community, promoting the renewal of mind and spirit in a beautiful and a family-friendly setting. It also happens to be one of the attractions available when using the Visit Salt Lake Connect Pass.

Thanksgiving Point has activities for all ages, with opportunities for those with varying interests. In addition to the botanical gardens and Museum of Ancient Life, Thanksgiving Point boasts the XanGo Mammoth Screen 3D Theater and the Megaplex8 Theater, allowing visitors to enjoy either special-engagement 3D films or the latest Hollywood movies, as well as many educational videos.

Thanksgiving Point hosts dozens of public events throughout the year, including a farmer's market, wedding expo, car shows, Tulip festival and Independence Day fireworks, bringing over 1.2 million visitors a year to this popular attraction.

Thanksgiving Point offers free parking, and detailed signs direct visitors to specific attractions, events and activities. Thanksgiving Point is open year-round, Monday through Saturday; hours vary with the season. For more information on Thanksgiving Point and its hours of operation, visit or call 801-768-2300.

The Salt Lake Convention & Visitors Bureau is a private, non-profit corporation responsible for the promotion of Salt Lake as a convention and travel destination. Salt Lake is a unique fusion of metropolitan city and quaint mountain town; the towering Wasatch Mountains that embrace Salt Lake offer a dramatic backdrop to the vibrancy and activities of downtown. The Visit Salt Lake Connect Pass is a convenient, affordable pass giving visitors access to more than a dozen of Salt Lake's top attractions.
