Construction has begun on Utah's newest children's museum--the Museum of Natural Curiosity at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi. The new museum will include five interactive exhibit areas: Rainforest, Kidopolis, Waterworks, Children's Discovery Garden and Traveling Exhibits.
"This Museum will complement both Thanksgiving Point's current offerings and the museums throughout the state with its unique indoor-outdoor concept and specific focus on science. It will offer those of all ages a chance to reconnect with the world through active play," said Mike Washburn, Thanksgiving Point CEO.
As of Oct. 1, 2012, $23.4 million has been raised through donors for the 45,000-square-foot museum. Another $3.6 million is needed for the indoor components of the project. The Museum of Natural Curiosity is scheduled to open to the public in spring 2014.
