A museum of folk life and living history from 1820 - 1920, the American West Heritage Center specialized in hands-on, interactive fun for all ages: youth – seniors. Through Daily Adventures in the summer and special events throughout the year, it is Logan Utah’s most populated attraction--a blending of arts, history, heritage, and old-fashioned fun. It boasts very friendly staff, pony rides, train rides, and a petting zoo, as well as many other attractions.
