Unique Nativity now on display at BYU's Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum

The Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum at Brigham Young University is now displaying its annual Nativity, which will be exhibited through the end of the year.

“This nativity is a 300-square-foot presentation that features about 30 different animal species,” said Patty Jones, administrative assistant at the museum. “We started this tradition 25 years ago to simply remind our patrons that all things testify of the Creator.”

This year’s Nativity is located in the center atrium of the museum. It includes the museum’s popular elephant and white rhino.

The museum is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission to all exhibits is free.

For more information, contact Patty Jones at (801) 422-5053 or patty_jones@byu.edu.
