Museums Day at the Legislature

On Thursday, February 28th, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Utah Museums Association and the Office of Utah Museum Services Board will hold Museums Day at the Legislature in the Rotunda. Museums from around Utah will take this opportunity to speak with their legislators. This is their chance to remind legislators of the important role of museums of preserving Utah culture and history.

Some features of Museums Day at the Legislature include live animals from the Tracy Aviary; exhibits from the Hogle Zoo, Living Planet Aquarium, and the Historic Wendover Airfield; and artifacts from the Natural History Museum of Utah. In addition to the exhibits there will be various museums' representation of living history folks.

The Utah Museums Association was founded in 1972 and serves Utah by advocating the importance of Utah Museums, Collaborating with organizations to create a museum network, and continuing to recognize museums as a educational resource for the people of Utah.

The Office of Utah Museum Services aids museums in caring for collections, creating educational resources, allowing researchers access to collections, and acquiring financial resources.
