This is a must-see museum. A fantastic exhibit of Ancestral Puebloan artifacts beautiful displayed. You can spend hours here if you want to see everything, and you will. A wonderful way to begin to appreciate these people and their culture. So glad we had the opportunity.

Built to house the remnants of "Black Monday", artifacts seized during the raid are impressive and are curated beautifully by Museum staff. The Museum is a jewel that reflects the history art and heritage of the region. Five stars!

Situated in a small SW Utah town in the middle of a new development, this state park is amazing! We've never seen so much about the native cultures in this area, presented in a very meaningful and interesting way. It's probably the best we've seen. We will definitely visit this place again when we return to see more of the... More

This was the first place the kids could learn about the Anasazi on our 2013 Southwest Trip. They were very fascinated by everything. There was a great kids' educational area and tons of pottery to look at. The favorite was hiking out to the kiva and other ruins and being able to go down into them. They really loved that.... More

BEAUTIFUL Pueblo and Anasazi art to view inside, living quarters and celestial mapping to see and understand outside. Worth a stop when rolling through.

This place is fabulous if you love this history of the Ancient Pueblo! The displays are better than most National Parks and tell a great timeline of who did what and when. There is a archeological dwelling in the grounds which was partially excavated a number of years ago. By request of and respect for the local Hopi Indians, further... More

The artifacts are presented in easily viewed displays. There are MANY amazing pieces. Climbing into the Kiva brings another dimension to the Anasazi way of life. Admission is reasonable and the staff were very friendly. Whether a quick tour or a slow immersed visit, Edge of Cedars is well worth the stop.

Thought we'd be here for a hot minute, but ended up spending several hours. Great introduction to the Ancient Puebloans for a mere $5 entrance fee. I especially enjoyed the special exhibits and the exhibit on people who found artifacts and "did the right thing" by notifying the museum instead of taking them for their own personal profit. It's great... More

Edge of Cedars Museum of native artifacts was amazing. The place is right in Blanding and easy to find. The admission is very reasonable and the displays well done. The staff greated us with a warm friendly welcome which started us off on a great visit to the museum. The displays depict the history and culture of the Peublo people... More

So surprised at this museum with its big collection of pottery. Onsite is reconstructed kiva to climb into and a sculpture, which aligns on the solstices. Good bookstore and docent was very informative. When we were there, a photographic exhibit by Bob Maynard was well worth seeing.
