This museum features the original cabins from the second Fort Utah, furnished in the traditional fashion of pioneer days. It also houses a large collection of western art and artifacts from early Utah.
Located in North Park, the museum displays furniture, decorations, clothing, tools, guns, and other items used by the Utah pioneers prior to 1900. Other highlights include a quilt display and art prints of both Brigham Young Academy and a younger Provo City.
Founded in 1901, the Daughters of Utah Pioneers states that the purpose of the organization is "to perpetuate the names and achievements of the men, women and children who were the pioneers in founding this commonwealth by preserving old landmarks, marking historical places, collecting artifacts and histories, establishing a library of historical matter and securing manuscripts, photographs, maps, and all such data as shall aid in perfecting a record of the Utah pioneers."
Hours are limited, but group appointments can be made outside of normal operating hours; call for details.
