This annual event, a collaboration between all of BYU's museums, encourages participants to visit each museum in one night and solve a riddle pertaining to something on display in their exhibits. Earn a sticker for every correct answer, and show all 5 to claim a prize at the end. Free admission.

In addition to looking through our exhibit hall, make sure you visit the back to learn more about our collections, technology, and to see what research projects are happening at the MPC this year!

Mornings at the Museum

Join us for a summer of adventure with Mornings at the Museum, a weekly storytelling program designed for children under 11 years old (with adult supervision). Each Tuesday, we’ll embark on a journey through time and space to explore the rich tapestry of cultures across the world.

Children will dive into an interactive story-telling experience led by one of BYU's talented theater arts students that brings to life the traditions and myths of diverse civilizations. But that’s not all! Then to end each session, kids will have the chance to express their creativity through arts and crafts related to the day’s story.

Schedule and Themes:

  • June 4: Discover the vibrant heritage of the Philippines
  • June 11: Traverse the ancient wonders of China
  • June 18: Uncover the mysteries of Babylonia
  • June 25: Celebrate the traditions of the Sami people from Norway
  • July 2: Learn about the history of the Ute Native Americans
  • July 9: Set sail to the islands of Polynesia
  • July 16: Step back in time to the era of the Aztecs
  • July 23: Experience the rich culture of the Ivory Coast
  • July 30: Feel the rhythm of Haiti

Time:

  • Every Tuesday in June & July 2024
  • 10:00-11:00 am

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to give your children a summer filled with learning, fun, and imagination. We can’t wait to see you there!
