Kathryn Mc Mahon, 4, and Colin Mc Mahon, 8, of Salt Lake City, look at a case of tarantulas during the annual Behind the Scenes event at the Natural History Museum of Utah Saturday November 23, 2013.
The Natural History Museum of Utah gave weekend visitors a behind-the-scenes look into its operations.
Only a fraction of the museum’s million objects are on display. One weekend each year, the museum invites visitors to tour what usually only employees get to see — its paleontology, anthropology, and biology collections plus its research labs.
