Timpanogos Cave Tours

Timpanogos Cave National Monument sits high in the Wasatch Mountains. The cave system consists of three spectacularly decorated caverns. Helictites and anthodites are just a few of the many dazzling formations to be found in the many chambers. As visitors climb to the cave entrance, on a hike gaining over 1,000 ft in elevation, they are offered incredible views of American Fork Canyon.

Cave tour fees are waived during mid-August weekend as part of the National Park Service Fee-Free Weekends.

Nuchu: Voices of the Ute People

The BYU Museum of Peoples and Cultures is pleased to announce its newest exhibit, “Nuchu: Voices of the Ute People.”

The exhibit celebrates the rich heritage of the Ute throughout northeastern Utah, including Utah Valley. In the exhibit, their voices tell the story of their vibrant history and life.

The exhibit contains items collected around the Vernal area of Utah during the 1930s and 1940s. The text and labels for this exhibit are taken from interviews with Ute tribal members over the past 15 years, providing an opportunity to hear how the Ute view the items and their own heritage. Helping to fulfill the MPC’s mission to train future museum professionals, “students have combed through hours of interviews and texts, collaborated on the design of the galleries, and built the displays,” Kari Nelson, curator of education, said.

After the shows, the observation deck on the roof will be open, weather permitting, with telescopes set up for the public to look through.

The Planetarium is located in room N465 on the 4th floor of the Eyring Science Center on the BYU Campus in Provo, Utah.
