(Chris Detrick | The Salt Lake Tribune) Visitors looks at the skeleton of a Hagerman horse and the skull of a Nasutoceratops titusi during the annual Behind the Scenes event at the Natural History Museum of Utah Saturday November 23, 2013. The event continues Sunday, November 24, 2013 - 10:00am - 5:00pm.

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.
