Children’s Museum Moving to Gateway

The Children’s Museum of Utah is moving to The Gateway complex, close to downtown Salt Lake City.

Salt Lake Tribune’s Celia R. Baker reports:

“The popular museum is moving to The Gateway in Salt Lake City and reinventing itself as Discovery Gateway. When Saturday's crowd of kids and parents depart, the quaint, Spanish-style building - which served generations of families as a spring-fed swimming resort before becoming a children's museum - will close its doors and await its next incarnation.

“The Gateway Discovery building is sparkling new, and was designed to its purpose as a children's museum, she says. It will open on a yet-to-be-determined date in mid-September.

“At the Children's Museum of Utah, kids can sit in the cockpit of a real jet airplane or behind the steering wheel of a big truck. They can farm vegetables, gather eggs and bake bread - then ‘sell’ their products in a scale-model grocery store. They can act out stories, build buildings and dream dreams - but only until Saturday.”

See the museum’s website for current information.
