The Canyon and Canyon Terrace – Weddings
Ceremony & Reception
As the signature space of the Museum, the Canyon offers dramatic architecture inspired by the slot canyons of southern Utah. Light plays off faceted walls that soar over a concrete floor inlaid with stones reminiscent of a stream bed. To the west, the Canyon opens to sweeping views of the Salt Lake Valley through a three-story glass wall. An adjacent outdoor terrace extends your guests’ experience, weather permitting.
Enhance the memories of your special day with optional Gallery Experiences. Between your ceremony and reception, your guests can stroll through four galleries and millions of years of Utah’s history during a social hour. They’ll marvel at newly discovered dinosaurs, see the Great Salt Lake transformed into prehistoric Lake Bonneville, and discover some of the oldest objects made by Utah’s first inhabitants.

Our wedding reception at the Natural History Museum of Utah was stunning

Absolutely amazing. Our reception was stunning. The museum is the perfect location. Guests were blown away. I was amazed at how helpful and accommodating the staff are as well. It was a wonderful experience. I have no regrets and would recommend to anyone that they have the reception at NHMU.

Natural History Museum of Utah is spectacular and provides amazing views of the valley day and night!

This relatively new, architecturally stunning, completely energy efficient attraction is definitely worth the visit! The location is spectacular and provides amazing views of the valley day and night!  The contrast of the modern building style against exhibits of ancient artifacts provides a great juxtaposition. The shape of the building makes for a very natural flow.
