Discovery Gateway is the premier Children's Museum in the state of Utah, with exhibits and hands-on demonstrations designed to help kids learn about the how the world works. It's located inside The Gateway, an attractive outdoor mall offering a wide variety of shopping and restaurants. The museum is entirely indoors, offering visitors a great escape from the cold and snow of winter and the dry heat of summer. Among the highlights: "Saving Lives from the Sky" allows kids to participate in a mock Life Flight rescue from a real helicopter. A brightly-colored, modern, fun children's museum and a big step up from its predecessor.
