Best Museums: When to go Avoid the exhibit traffic jams by hitting the slower times at the museum. 1. Museum of Natural Curiosity, Thanksgiving Point The last two hours before the museum closes are the least busy time. If you are in for a nighttime adventure, there may be a chance that you’ll even get the museum to yourself. 2. Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum, BYU Skip out on the field trip crowds during the morning and venture through the Bean Museum in the afternoons and evenings. Friday nights are especially slow, so take a chance at a private tour of the museum. 3. North American Museum of Ancient Life, Thanksgiving Point Miss the crowds on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening after 4 p.m. Kids manipulate the land to see where water would flow in a Water Works exhibit at the Museum of Natural Curiosity.
