Museum of Natural Curiosity
Thanksgiving Point broke ground on the Museum of Natural Curiosity in the Barbara Barrington Jones Family Foundation Building – Utah’s newest children’s museum on Oct. 1, 2012. This marked the start of construction on the 45,000-square-foot building that is scheduled to open in spring 2014. This innovative museum will feature more than 150 exhibits to teach arts, sciences, history and culture to hundreds and thousands of families. Five main exhibit areas will encompass the museum: Rainforest, Waterworks, Kidopolis, Children’s Discovery Garden, and Traveling Exhibits.
Exhibits are designed by Roto Group (Dublin, Ohio) known for its award-winning designs worldwide in museums, science centers, zoos, aquariums, corporate and entertainment facilities. The project architect is FFKR Architects, and the general contractor for building and site construction is Okland Construction—both local companies from Salt Lake City, UT.
The highly anticipated museum will be built in the youngest county in the nation—Utah County—which will meet the need for a new family-friendly venue to serve the large amount of youth in the area.
