Pioneer Memorial Museum

(Taken from Visit Salt Lake blog)

The Daughters of the Utah Pioneers Museum recently celebrated it’s Grand Opening and Re-dedication.  The museum has undergone some renovations and cleanings, leaving different levels closed off at different times.  Now, it’s all open again and, boy oh boy, it is such a treasure.

Every step you take, you find something magnificent and full of history.  Many items are accompanied by a card telling you the name of the pioneer to which the item belonged.  As a descendant of a million Utah pioneers (ok, maybe just dozens), I kept my eyes open in hopes of stumbling across a great, great, great grandmother’s handkerchief or other such delight.  Alas, I found nothing, although my brother informed me (AFTER we left the museum) that he had seen something from somebody by the name of one of our ancestors.  Of course, he couldn’t remember where or what.  So I guess I’ll be making another trip back there!
