Alien Worlds and Androids at The Leo | Field Trippin'

Inside the NEW Leonardo Museum exhibit you’ll find a life-size C-3PO and R2-D2 from STAR WARS, an exact replica of Tony Stark’s IRON MAN suit, robots from the TERMINATOR movies and more!

Flight Exhibit at The Leonardo

Hey Friends! It's no secret that The Salt Project loves The Leonardo Museum in Salt Lake City. (Our past posts here, here and here.) It's an awesome hands-on experience where you are encouraged to ask questions, build with your hands and expand your imagination! The Leonardo has brought in many different exhibits, but now they want to have one that Utah can all their own. So what are they adding?! An exhibit ALL ABOUT FLYING called Flight.

The Leonardo | Field Trippn' | The Mummies

During our failed attempt to see the lights at Temple Square last month (the place was so packed we just turned around and went home. Word to the wise, Don't Go On the Saturday Before Christmas.) We saw signs downtown for the Mummy Exhibit at The Leo. I missed the Body World Exhibit last year and have been kicking myself ever since. So I added the Mummy Exhibit to my Winter Bucket List and I'm SO glad I did! My kids always beg to go to The Leonardo. It's one of their favorite museums and its located right down town

Unfortunately we only had 40 minutes to explore because I didn't check their hours before we went. I just saw that there were Spooky Science Experiments at 3:30 and 4:30 on Thursday and assumed that they were open all night, but they close at 5 on weekdays. I was super bummed but it wasn't worth another drive to SLC to come on another night. We decided to make the most of it and ran around
