Through the end of summer, Salt Lake’s Natural History Museum is partnering with the burgeoning local food truck scene to offer something a little bit different. Each Wednesday night the museum opens till 9pm. To make sure visitors are well fed and full of energy to tour the facilities exhibits, the museum has invited a number of local food trucks to attend. Advertised hours for the food trucks are 5pm through 7pm but you might find them a little earlier or later based on foot traffic at the museum itself.
“sometimes the vendors have had unexpected things come up at the last minute, requiring a scramble to find a substitute. [One night some] trucks had to cancel, all unforeseeable reasons! The really great thing has been the underlying spirit of commitment and community with these Food Trucks – they’ve been quite wonderful with their willingness to back each other up and with rising to the occasion to help find replacements!”
The existing trial program is set to run for the next three Wednesdays, the last night being September 12th. So, what better way to enjoy one of Utah’s coolest new attractions while also experiencing one its rapidly expanding and evolving culinary treats at the same time!

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade. I’m largely fueled by Uinta Cutthroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand. I ate all the pies.
