  • I have been wanting to stop here for a while and finally got a chance! Be sure to enjoy the video before experiencing the museum. A good selection of history and artifacts, and a lovely small river...

  • Very simple basic museum. It is $7 to enter. Reasonable place to stop if you are on a long road journey to Moab. Large car park and restrooms and just off the main road.

  • More impressed than I expected to be. I learned a lot about the river running experience from Powell through today. We spent 2 hours. They have a well done movie that runs every 30 minutes. Watch it first then visit exhibits. We also enjoyed the displays on the outside deck while we waited for them to open. My favorite thing were the hall of fame stories, very interesting. Dinosaurs in the lower level will appeal to kids.
  • Great movie about the discovery voyage of Scott Wesley Powell on the Colorado river. Nice display about the course of the river, and the elevation at various points. The main exhibit included displays about the history of river rafting on the Colorado. Attractive gift shop. Easy access to the river. Entry fee was good for a week. Did not include info about the historic Green River annual boat race, which was described by one of the locals.
