Pioneer Memorial Museum

The Pioneer Memorial Museum is crammed with artefacts from frontier life, its four storeys filled with the history of Utah. The relics are wide ranging, from doll old guns, doll collections and horse coaches to medical tools, a 1901 fire engine and the personal effects of Mormom leader Brigham Young. Many of the objects come with stories about the original owners with museum attendants happy to enlighten curious visitors. The museum collection is said to be the largest collection in the world focused on one subject. A short film is shown every half hour while residents of Utah are also encouraged to come to the museum so as to research their family's past.
