Great Salt Lake

The compelling narrative of the Great Salt Lake, a remnant of ancient Lake Bonneville is brought to life through hands-on interactives, sounds, smells, and a spectacular view of the Lake itself. 

Take a “walk around” this large terminal body of water in the midst of a vast inland desert. 

Get an up-close view of some of the lake’s smaller inhabitants.

The Great Salt Lake exhibition is located in the Willard L. Eccles Foundation Gallery.
