The Western Heritage Museum is in a new building on Highway 40 next to the library. It's well worth a stop.

And they had a wonderful little gift shop... More

Wife and I loved this museum. Lots of things to see from Vernal and Utah's past. We went during the county fair and it was free, so that was a plus. If you like historical artifacts this is a great little museum to go to.

If you want to see how the pioneers lived this is a great little museum. Also they have local artists and monthly shows that are pretty cool.
