It's the final countdown for one of Salt Lake's favorite museums as the Utah Museum of Natural History celebrates the final week in its current location on President's Circle at the University of Utah. Once 2010 is over, the museum will be closed for approximately nine months for the move to its new location near Red Butte Garden.
Special programs this week include "The Dino Show: Live from Laramidia" Tuesday-Thursday, Dec. 28-30 at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., and a "Noon Year's Eve" party Friday, Dec. 31 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Kids ages 3-17 can attend the museum free with an online printable coupon. Parking in front of the museum is available but limited, but patrons can park at pay lots around campus or take TRAX to the museum.
