This small museum has potential, and has a few good exhibits, but it's hampered by poor descriptions or no descriptions at all, so there's no context to what you're looking at. Example: a replica of the "Moab mastodon" petroglyph that supposedly depicts an ice age Mastodon. This interpretation has been discredited in the scientific literature, and is only clung to... More

Fun little museum! Has several casts of dinosaur bones found in the area, including some skulls and a skeleton. Has a good bit of information and exhibits about the history of the town. Not many interactive exhibits, so might be a bit boring for kids, but for adults who are into History, this is a pretty quick stop. If you're... More

It's a little hard to find but once your in it's great. The exhibits are very diverse. Dinosaurs, Uranium, Pioneers, Native Americans and town history. When it's too hot in Moab this is a great couple of hours and a neat place to learn about this beautiful town. My son loved playing the Old Player Piano.

As a former museum professional, I am always interested in visiting small, local museums like this one. In general, the displays consisted of interesting artifacts well-labeled. If for no other reason, the museum should be visited to see the huge Native American burden basket that was discovered by local teenagers. Of the items currently on display, it is the star... More

I wasn't sure what to expect when visiting Moab's Museum. The museum has a lot of historical artifacts from dinosaur bones to items from Moab's first doctor. There is a little of everything historical from the area inside this small museum. The museum also has a small art exhibit upstairs that highlight a few Moab resident artists. My recommendation is...

Well organized small museum with focus on local geology, mining, settlement and native american histories. Well worth the admission and one to two hours of time to escape the heat.

We have travelled many times to Moab and wondered about some of the area and town history. The entrance fee for adults was $5, cheaper for kids. There was information about dinosaurs, Native Americans, and lots on the history of mining in this area. The attendant was knowledgeable and answer our questions. Educational and comfortable get a way on a... More

Took my in-laws to visit on a windy day. They loved it and I recommend it to all my customers. I am local and I love going in from time to time.

If you're temporarily done with doing the outdoor activities in Moab and want to take a break from the elements, this is a great place to while away 30 minutes or a couple of hours. It's small museum, centrally located, with wonderful exhibits to educate, amuse and amaze young and old alike. Fossils, pioneer life and history, mining and archeology...may... More
