How interesting is this unpretentious museum. Well worth the visit, a great use of not a huge space. Loved the old photographs - lots of memorabilia. Neat and tidy informative exhibits. Pleasant and friendly staff. Great work. Glad we stopped by!!

Very well done for such a small museum. Worth the time. They had a Navajo weaving exhibit when we were there and it was excellent.

We loved this museum...very informative. It wasn't just about the explorer, but also about many other adventurers who traversed the Lake Powell waters. Also on exhibit were Native American artifacts and other interesting pieces of history.

This is a well thought out museum. There is a lot of information and great pictures. There are a lot of native arts and crafts you can purchase and well as jewelry. Nice place to spend an hour or so discovering facts about Lake Powell and the surrounding area.

If you're in Page, you are probably going to see the Dam and the Colorado River. To truly enjoy the town, visit this little museum. They have great exhibits, it's small yet informative, and they have a very knowledgable staff and a terrific little gift shop.

Quite small museum, but a very nice way to learn about the fascinating John Wesley Powell & his explorations. Nice respite on a hot day.

This is a sort-of eclectic museum. Some Indian history, some river exploration, one or two dinosaurs, a mammoth and history of Page. Nevertheless, it was very fun to dedicate some 30 minutes to after returning from Antelope canyon and before heading out for dinner.
