Nice small museum

Nice small museum. Loved the art display. They were offering admission for $2 each which was nice. Good for a short visit.

We needed to spend an hour or so waiting for our tour of Antelope Canyon, and the idea of getting out of the heat was appealing. This museum and the friendly, helpful staff did not disappoint. Well worth the entrance fee - the dinosaur exhibit and contemporary art work was especially nice.

If you want a little history of how Page, AZ came about, go to the John Powell Museum! Informative with a art gallery and gift store -- something for everyone to browse, even kids! Plus -- a little Hollywood thrown in! You'll have to go and find out who was the Hollywood star!

You'll learn a lot about the development of the lake and dam. Small gift shop with fine art and Native American art and jewelry.

The Powell Museum celebrates the singular achievements of Major Powell in art, artifacts and more...and places his signature acheivement in the pantheon of the American westward expansion. Considerable attention to the monumental engineering feat of subduing the Colorado River behind the Glen Canyon Dam. A GREAT collection of local-regional artwork, and a TERRIFIC regional bookstore. I never not go, as... More

Powell was an adventuresome explorer. That sounds trite but it is true. The museum is a nice tribute to the explorer of the Southwest and the Colorado River.

So, so as museums go. You could miss this one and not have missed much. The volunteers present on the day we went were verbose in their discussion of scheduling and management of the museum. Not terribly profesional.
