We spent a couple of hours : very interesting, with different focus. We particularly liked the part on uranium mining and also the video about all the films that were shot around Moab. It's really worth the time.

Multi-generational highlight in Moab” There are so many artifacts, photos, captions, fossils, and antiques to browse through that can keep you busy for hours. The docents are happy to add local stories and history of Moab, for any questions you might have. This museum encourages a person to touch and look, with less glass cases to hinder your tour. For...

Interesting to see some of the history of Moab. Staff was super friendly and the AC was cranking, nice place to get out of the heat for a few minutes.

It's a small museum with a lot of artifacts and history. It was disappointing to know that they had removed the scalp of a pioneer, taken by an American Indian for political correctness. Moab has a great pioneer history, but is also the site of winter gatherings of local tribes, along with burials of the now extinct, Anasazi Indians. Moab... More

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
