The museum building was original built to serve as Utah's state capitol, but only the south wing was ever completed. The existing portion was finished in time for the December 1855 meeting of the Territorial Legislature, which was the only full session held in the old statehouse. In December 1858, the seat of government was moved to Salt Lake City.
This is Utah's oldest existing governmental building. An All-American Rose Society Garden and picnic area adjoin the museum.
The museum bookstore offers a wide range of publications ranging from cookbooks, western and Utah history to historical and geological accounts of the area. There are also activity books for children. The museum gift shop carries treats along with fun activities for all ages.
This state park museum is housed in the restored building used briefly as Utah's territorial capitol. It offers historic and cultural displays. There is a nice garden and picnic area.
