The College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences maintains many attractions on campus and in the surrounding area. Two especially prominent features are the Museum of Paleontology and the BYU Planetarium. Click the links below to learn more about each.

Museum of Paleontology


The Museum of Paleontology, previously the Earth Sciences Museum, is located in Provo, Utah, across the street from the LaVell Edwards Stadium.

This museum showcases many fossils from the Jurassic Period, which spans a period from approximately 210-140 million years ago. It also houses one of the top five collections from the Jurassic Period in the world and has been featured in magazines, newspapers, and on television throughout the world.

BYU Planetarium


The new Royden G. Derrick planetarium at BYU was completed in March of 2005. The facility is located in the Eyring Science Center on campus and is used primarily for holding University classes. However, we also provide outreach shows for community groups and weekend shows for the general pubic.
