Proposed Museum To Teach Preparedness

A place to have "fun" with disasters and learn at the same time: that's the premise of a new kind of museum that's in the works for Utah, the first of its kind anywhere in the world.

The goal would be to teach visitors how to deal with a disaster and how to prepare in advance.
