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.

A very modern museum of native art, pottery and clothing with Pueblo ruins behind. This is well worth a visit.

This small museum has an excellent collection of Ancient Puebloan artifacts. It is definitely worth a visit. Don't miss the macaw feather sash and copper bell from Chaco Canyon, pottery, sandals, baskets, etc.

Kudos to the state of Utah for its excellent museums tucked away in tiny towns around the state. This museum holds one of the largest collections of ancestral Puebloan artifacts in the region. Amazing examples of pottery from as early as 750 through the entire Chacoan cultural periods. The macaw feather sash, turkey blanket and several aviforms are special attractions.... More

I'm more a "go see it in person" kinda guy & don't do lots of museums. I almost never repeat a museum visit. This is my third time here. If you're at all interested in ancestral Puebloan (aka "Anasazi", etc.) cultural resources, archaeology, anthropology, this is mandatory. If not, but would just like a sense of who lived here before... More

This is a must see. Even if you don't like museums, outback they have the ruins of a 500 – 600 year old pueblo. Go see it at the end of the day when the sun is going down. You can climb down into the Kiva.

We came to the US on a once in a lifetime holiday to visit the national parks and especially to visit Mesa Verde, so we were devastated when the politicians closed all the parks We had accommodation booked in Cortez anyway so we looked for other places to visit to get at least a sense of the ancient cultures in...
