The Box Elder Museum Foundation supports the Box Elder Museum (natural history) and the Brigham City Museum (art and history).
Since 1969, it has been our mission to preserve the art and history of Box Elder County. While the mission has always included natural history, that only became reality with the opening of the Box Elder Museum in 2009. We offer six to eight special exhibitions each year ranging from our National Invitational Quilt exhibition to traveling history and art exhibitions from the Smithsonian Institution and the National Endowment for the Humanities. We provide opportunities to see great art, history, and natural history without traveling far from home.
We have already outgrown our current space, and will eventually need a new home, so the two museums can be more fully integrated and provide a one-stop experience for citizens and visitors alike. In the meantime we are working toward more immediate goals to make the museum a better place for you and your family. With your help we can continue to preserve the whole culture of our area (including more recent history, such as that of the Intermountain Indian School).
Your donation will help us bring you more and better exhibits (including rotating exhibits on natural history), special events including historic tours, lectures, receptions, and so forth, and better access to museum collections. With your help, 20% of the museum’s collections will be available online by mid-2013.
