[Salt Lake City, UT] It is not easy finding a museum in the Rocky Mountains that is open past 6 p.m. Especially in fall and winter.
That is why we zeroed in on “Wild World” at the architecturally magnificent (and LEED Gold-certified) Natural History Museum of Utah. Read about its design team. [https://nhmu.utah.edu/museum/our-new-home/design-team]
“Wild World: Stories of Conservation & Hope” is an immersive exhibit experience sharing conservation success stories from around the world.
Full of life, the exhibit presents stories of wild animals and conservationists to show us why there is hope on the horizon.
And, frankly, we need hope.
Wildlife populations around the world are under enormous stress due to pollution, deforestation, and habitat encroachment. Many species are becoming endangered while others are on the brink of extinction. But thanks to conservation efforts dedicated to animals large and small, there is much for which we can be hopeful.
Natural History Museum of Utah‘s “Wild World: Stories of Conservation & Hope” is on view through Nov. 5, 2023.
In addition to traditional daytime hours, Natural History Museum of Utah is open until 9 p.m. every Wednesday. #EveryMuseum in America could be open late at least once a month. Most are not. 24HourNation is grateful for the NHMU and other art, science, and history museums that are mindful of nighttime patrons. Thank you.
