About us

Mission and Core Values

 

The Hutchings Museum was founded by John Hutchings, and houses natural and cultural artifacts from across the globe.  Born in 1889, John was a lifelong explorer and collector.  He gifted his enormous collection to the people of Lehi in 1956, and it is now permanently housed in the Veterans Memorial Building near the city center.  

At the Hutchings Museum our mission is to cultivate John’s marvelous spirit of exploration and curiosity in visitors of all ages.

Everything we do, every exhibit, and every program is driven by our core values, which are:

Preservation

Restoration

Conservation

Exploration

Stewardship

Education
