The Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum at Brigham Young University is a dynamic repository and trustee for a remarkable group of biological collections. These collections are used to celebrate the role of Jesus Christ as Creator, while enhancing student learning and mentoring and promoting faculty teaching and research. They also serve as a unique venue for inviting the public and scientific community to explore and contemplate intricate biological relationships and processes.

Our popular live animal shows are designed for specific grades in connection with the Utah Science State Core Curriculum. Shows can be either in house at the Bean museum or as part of an outreach. Free public shows are held in-house Monday-Friday at 7:30 PM with an additional show at 6:30 PM on Monday, and Saturday at 1 PM and 3 PM. Shows typically last 30 to 45 minutes.
