Park City Ghost Tours

Park City Ghost Tours, Ghost Stories, Park City, UtahHear about Lizzy… the ghost that lives at the Imperial Hotel. Her husband shot her and her boyfriend as they lay sleeping in bed. (She likes men with beards!)

Learn about the Miner who fell down the mine shaft losing every limb on the 600 foot fall. (His favorite bar with the Alamo and he can still be seen drinking there today.)

Park City Ghost Tours reflects years of research into the colorful past of Park City. Originally a mining outpost, most people in Utah considered Park City “Sin City”.

With mining came hard drinking, gambling and brothels. And with this… came accidents, mysterious unexplained deaths and MURDER!

planetarium shows

Weekly Public Planetarium Shows planetarium shows given by the BYU Astronomical Society are held most Friday nights.

The shows start promptly at 7 and 8 PM.  There is no late admittance. Because it gets very dark in the planetarium the shows may not be appropriate for some young children. Please keep in mind that it is difficult to leave once the show has begun.

After the shows, the observation deck on the roof will be open, weather permitting, with telescopes setup for the public to look through.

The Planetarium is located in room N465 on the 4th floor of the Eyring Science Center on BYU Campus in Provo, Utah.

Sphinxes and Sweethearts

Take a step into the past and bring a date to BYU’s Museum of Peoples and Cultures (MPC) to experience a night of Egyptian culture and cuisine on Friday, November 12th.  The Egyptian-themed date night “Sphinxes and Sweethearts” will begin at 7:00 that evening.

SphinxThe date night includes 4 games, a craft, refreshments, and prizes.  First on the agenda is a mummy-wrapping race in which one person must wrap up their date like a mummy.  The first couple to finish wins a prize.  Couples will then receive score cards and go into the Museum’s classroom to play a round of 3 different games: Pyramid, Egyptian Balderdash, and Matching of the Gods.  The couple with the highest total wins a prize.  The final prizes are awarded to couples with the best craft, after they take time to use the MPC’s own “Rosetta stone” to paint their own hieroglyphs.  Mediterranean refreshments are served.

“Couples get to learn about the Egyptian culture in a really unique way,” said Anna McKean, promotions manager at the MPC.  “Every element of the date night – the games, the craft, the food – provides interesting information about Ancient Egypt.”

Tickets for the date night are $10 per couple and will be available at the WSC Information Desk beginning November 8th.  For more information visit mpc.byu.edu or call 801.422.0020.
