|USU Eastern Prehistoric Museum Price, Utah|
Most of us didn't like the learning part of school back when we were young. The constant bombardment of lectures and homework weren't our thing but I'll bet if you are like me you wished you had paid better attention to some of those subjects (not math, math still sucks.) I love history. I've loved it most of my life and unfortunately I think maybe I discovered that love a little late in life but them's the breaks. I can, however, share that love with my kids.
I don't care where you travel there is always a place where you can learn something new. Museums are a great place to see exhibits that showcase life as it was, is and will be.
The image to the left was taken while on a trip back from Moab to Salt Lake. I have passed through the town of Price on countless occasions over the past twenty five years and never took the opportunity to stop in to the USU Eastern Prehistoric Museum. One day we finally made the time to stop in and we weren't disappointed. It's not every day you can stand toe to toe with a Mastodon.

These are just a couple of examples of what you can find in your travels if you just keep an eye out. I encourage you to take the opportunity to visit as many museums or unique places as you can as you travel. It will make the trip more fun for the family and the memories you create are priceless.
