The Natural History Museum of Utah welcomes between 260,000 and 270,000 visitors each year. With exhibitions focused on the sky, the land, the web of life, dinosaurs, prehistoric peoples, and contemporary indigenous peoples. In addition to helping the museum preserve its ethnographic collection, NEH funding helped the museum develop humanities exhibitions that rank among its most popular. This includes Native Voices, a permanent exhibition devoted to Utah’s Native American tribes which was opened as permanent installation in 2011.
