The Garth and Jerri Frehner Museum of Natural History is dedicated to providing educational experiences for Southern Utah’s residents, teachers, and students in all subjects relating to biology, geology, and anthropology. The Museum will capture your eye the minute you enter the door. They believe K-12 students should have access to hands-on learning about their environment and the natural resources in southern Utah. They strive to provide education that is fun and engaging while leading everyone to a deeper level of understanding where true learning takes place.
