“60,000 square feet of fun!”
Discovery Gateway children's museum is located in the Gateway Mall in downtown Salt Lake City. Discovery Gateway offers 60,000 square feet of interactive, hands-on fun. Come explore our engaging workshops, programs, and exhibits that invite the whole family to create, learn, and play together! Discovery Gateway's programs and exhibits are designed to address the many ways that children learn, as well as to help parents understand and support their children's development. Our engaging and interactive activities inspire creative play and learning, and fun for the entire family. Formerly The Children's Museum of Utah, our organization was founded in 1978 by a group of parents, educators, and community leaders who believed that children learn the best through "doing." In 2006, The Children's Museum of Utah moved into our 60,000 square-foot, world-class facility and officially became Discovery Gateway children's museum.
If you have road-weary kids, this will be a great relief! Since it's in the middle of a shopping center, Dad can stay with the kids while mom shops. This is a great museum though, so Mom and Dad might want to get in on the play. Don't assume you can pop in and out in 30 minutes. If you're going to stop here, you're going to want to plan on being here for a couple hours. As far as I know there is no food available, so maybe stop by one of the restaurants or the food court in the shopping center first.
