This museum has a relatively large collection of military aircraft that spans most of the history of the U.S. Airforce. There is an outdoor and two indoor collections, and all are well-maintained, with well-designed displays and placards giving the history and information about each aircraft displayed. Admission is free, which is pretty remarkable,and kids really enjoy being able to get up close and personal with the aircraft. The only down side is that there are no planes in which you can tour or see the inside. The museum also provides some great stories, with its "Utah Aviation Hall of Fame" exhibit, and the USAF in Vietnam exhibit, which includes a section on prisoners of war and USAF (Vietnam) Medal of Honor recipients. If you have any interest at all in military aviation - or think you might possibly have an interest - this museum is well worth the visit.

Antelope Island State Park

A beautiful park located on the largest of the Great Salt Lakes islands; features lots of white-sand beaches, hiking and biking trails in addition to a variety of flora and fauna, including deer, bob cats, and of course, antelopes.

Reviewed By dalgal2u - Albany, New York

There’s something for any nature lover at Antelope Island. Simply driving around and admiring the views is enough. Buffalo Point was one of the most breathtaking views ever. Watching the wild animals roaming this minimally impacted area was heart warming. There’s a beach to easily access the Great Salt Lake. Swing by the Buffalo Island Grill for casual eats. Try the the buffalo burger for sure! If your up for hiking, there are beautiful trails of various difficulties and views. The campsites are all easily accessible with amazing views as well. I can’t wait to go back to the ranch and try some horseback riding!

Treehouse Children's Museum

Open since 1992, Treehouse Museum is a hands-on children's museum focused on children's literature and the arts. With dozens of beautiful exhibits and award-winning daily programs Treehouse is truly the magical place where children and families can "Step into a Story."

Reviewed By Carolyn M - Ogden, UT

I am so grateful that Ogden has The Treehouse Children's Museum! All of my grandchildren, currently ages 8-16 have enjoyed the Treehouse throughout their childhoods. My youngest still has a membership and loves going as often as possible. She loves all the play areas, especially the diner, the houses representing different countries, the rodeo area, and the new jail and firehouse. One of her favorite things is the art garden. She's always excited to see what they're making. What a treasure the Treehouse is for our children! I also love that adults can accompany their little Treehouse MEMBERS for free! As a side note, I would encourage parents to put down their phones and PLAY with their children while there. Sad when I see children trying to get their parents attention away from their phones.

Little bit of everything here, including - when I was there - a full-size carriage in the back room. There is a LOT of variety, with lots of rooms full of goodies. Definitely a place to visit, even if you're not into antiques. It's a pleasure walking through the "history."

We have an annual pass and this is great for a few reasons.
1 - You don't have to go during discount days or weekends when it is more crowded.
2 - You get friends in at 50% off.
3 - You don't have to stay all day to feel like you got your monies worth. Just go for an hour every month or two (or more).

They seem to change things up every few months.

It can be hard to find people to spend tokens for food on certain days. They did add a dispenser by the Manta Rays (but it needs a sign Tokens Only because people keep putting quarters in it.)

Not a huge impressive over the top aquarium, but if the kids love it, then so do we. They slowly are improving aesthetics.

My ten year old tells me he wants to work here every time we go!!

Union Station

For 50 years this stately and historic depot served as a major hub for transcontinental rail service. Today, it remains a monument to grand rail stations of the early 20th-century and includes four museums: the Utah State Railroad Museum, the Natural History Museum, the Browning Kimball Car Museum and the Browning Firearms Museum.

We were impressed by the passion and knowledge of the staff members. Chase in the Browning Museum was generous in sharing information and if someone were equally passionate, I imagine hours could be spent in this section alone learning about the history and details of the collection and the Browning family. Alan was a joy to listen to as we admired the impressive car collection and I wish we had had more time to hear more about each car. Nine of the cars had been owned by the Browning family and a favorite story Alan shared was about a beautiful 1931 steel blue Lincoln owned by Mrs. Browning. In order to bring it back to the mainland from Hawaii during the war, it had been dismantled and shipped in pineapple boxes. The Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum staff member was equally enthusiastic and informative and the collection was interesting. The Railroad Museum was the highlight. It was fun to learn interesting details of railroad history such as the importance and status symbol of the pocket watch, the history of the caboose and the development of time zones in relationship to the railroad. The displays were well done and the interactive section was fun. We spent a total of an hour and forty minutes here in total and did not spend time looking at the train cars outside.

George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park

Journey back in time to the days when the Dryosaurus roamed and the Tyrannosaurus rex ruled at this outdoor six-acre park that displays giant dinosaurs complete with sound effects like crashing trees and earth moving footsteps. The complex also includes a museum that features hands-on exhibits of the latest fossil finds from Utah and around the world.

This is a great place to take little kids to learn about dinosaurs, fossils, etc. My grandkids thoroughly enjoyed the exhibits inside as well as the life-size re-creations of dinosaurs outside. Good place for a picnic with your kids and the adults may learn something as well.

Historic 25th Street

Reviewed By erinrenfroe - Pensacola, Florida

This was a great little downtown street, with restaurants, bars and shops. The problem is figuring out which of these things you're standing in front of - hence the recommendation to bring your phone. Very walkable, not too long of a street, so it's good for a couple of hours but no more, unless you're like my husband and me and find a barstool to perch on for a bit. :)
