Charming museum that seems to be run by people with a passion for the west. I enjoyed the First Lady doll exhibit and all of the old machines.

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.

Indian artifacts are both educational and extremely interesting. Good display of Costumes, old appliances (like typewriters for example) took me back to my school days!

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.
