NEW Dinosaur Exhibit Is Open!

Experience the life of a paleontologist through your child’s eyes in our one-of-a-kind exhibit. Kids can dig for fossils, take them to the lab and identify their find under a microscope, interact with real fossils found in Utah, and learn about kids who have actually discovered dinosaurs. It's a first of its kind exhibit where kids get to be the paleontologist and get to be hands-on with actual fossils and bones!

Utah Jazz Catapult

All-Star Alliance and Utah Jazz are teaming up to celebrate the 2023 All-Star Game with the Utah Jazz Catapult in the Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum. The exhibit consists of a catapult that allows the user to launch a basketball from the free-throw line of a mini-basketball court and make a basket.


A membership is more than the free parking. It's more than the exclusive events. It's more than the deep discounts and the admission to participating museums. It's an adventure experienced together. It's dinner conversations sparked by digging up dinosaurs. It's your kiddos falling asleep on the way home from the fun you had all day. It's family traditions and memories that will last a lifetime.
