Museums

  • Daughters of Utah Pioneers Museum in Tooele: Located in Tooele City at 39 E Vine Street, the Daughters of Utah Pioneers Museum in Tooele was formerly known as the Pioneer City Hall. The rock used in the building was taken from Settlement Canyon in Tooele County. The building was used for a courthouse, city hall and amusement center until 1941, when the new city hall on Main Street in Tooele was completed. Later the building was turned over to the Daughters of Utah Pioneers for a Museum. The public is welcome to come in and see our many pictures, histories, and artifacts from Tooele County. We have published a Tooele County History Book containing history of Tooele County and some histories of early settlers, which sells for $30.00 until our next printing. There is also a Pioneer Log Cabin on the site. The photo and history collection of the Tooele County Daughters of Utah Pioneers is now being made available through an order form linked to their website. The museum is open on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. during the summer, from Memorial Day until Labor Day. It is available to tour any other time by appointment.
