Oh the Books, Photos, Rugs, Jewelry, Baskets, and the history is stunning. Now here is a place you don't want to miss for both children and adults.

It's a small museum but has a lot of photos and history, plus a nice little gift shop. It is also a visitor center, so you can get info about tours and things to see in the area. The museum itself is quite interesting. Learned lots about John Powell and the area. Worth the stop.

It was not obvious that this little museum is also a visitor centre (which we discovered by chance) and we were very thankful for. The ladies that run this centre are so helpful,knowledgable and enthusiastic not only about tourist opportunities in and around Page, but also for a much wider area. They really helped us to plan and to maximise... More

Not to be missed - a small museum with a huge chunk of history, namely adventures down the Colorado River. Tribute is paid to John Wesley Powell, one of my most admired explorers. In addition, the museum has an extensive collection of Navajo weaving, bones, rocks, and artifacts. Gifts. Knowledgeable staff. Super clean rest room.

First, these displays are dated. They are original to the museum from 1969. However, if you care at all about John Wesley Powell and his contributions to the United States, you can learn alot. Born in NYS. Died in Maine? Yes, that's true. But there was a lot that went on in between. And these displays will help you understand.... More

Well worth the admission price. Exhibits included river exploration and explorers, Native American weaving and crafts, fossils, dinosaur tracks and bones. Nice gift shop too.
