In Ogden, Utah there is a children’s museum like I have never seen before. It is the perfect size, even a little on the small side, for kids to explore and learn. The Treehouse Museum gets its name from the giant treehouse that is in the middle of the museum. From there, there are many different areas that cater to the interests of any child.
How to Get to the Treehouse Museum:
The Treehouse Museum is located at 347 22nd Street in Ogden, Utah. It is right across the street from the Ogden LDS Temple. There is free parking next to the museum building and free timed parking on the streets.
From I-15, from both the North and South, take Exit 343 and head East and turn South onto Grant Ave. From there go one block until you get to 22nd Street and turn left. The museum is about halfway down the block between 22nd Street and Keisel Ave.
