|Hopefully, there will be less snow next week. The mountains will be just as gorgeous, though.|
|Open rehearsal of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Amazing.|
Church History Museum
|Entrance to the Church History Museum.|
Adjacent to Temple Square, this is the museum for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It's got everything, up to and including Joseph Smith's death mask and an original hand cart used by a Mormon pioneer. Make sure you get upstairs to the children's galleries, and if you're pressed for time turn down the offer of an individual tour. I learned a ton and had great interactions with my guide, but it took over two hours to get through the (relatively small) galleries.
Natural History Museum of Utah
|I'm pretty sure there is no such thing as a bad photograph of this building.|
Salt Lake City Public Library
|Cafes and stores in the courtyard of the library.|
|This interactive sculpture responded to its environment by moving around and reaching out in a way that was simultaneously awe-inspiring and deeply creepy.|
This is certainly not a complete overview of every museum in Salt Lake City - there were plenty I didn't get to, unfortunately. It's a highly selective list of what I was able to do in a day and a half. I'd love to go back someday and dig deeper. If you're going to the conference, are there any museums on your list to visit?
