The Natural History Museum of Utah has recently opened its newly designed doors to guests, and is featuring more than just art exhibits.
The building, recently completed and designed to mimic its surroundings, is offering architecture tours four times per day during the week and twice on Sunday afternoons. Tours will showcase specific design elements of the building, such as the roof, which was made to rise and fall like the slope of the mountains; the concrete base designed to transition from earth to manmade; the copper panels outfitting the building, referencing the geophysical processes that created the metal, and the rational structural grid that defines north and south elements. While there, guests will also learn about the eco-friendly processes the building observes, putting it on par for LEED Gold certification. Architecture tours start at $9 for adults.

While they’re in the area, have your clients stay at the Salt Lake Plaza Hotel at Temple Square. The property offers a Getaway Package, where for $150 per night two guests can enjoy deluxe accommodations, buffet breakfast and two Visit Salt Lake Connect Passes, good for admission to one of eight cultural attractions in the area.
