“Great way to spend a couple of spare hours.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

You're likely to be in Cedar City for another reason. Bryce Canyon, Zion NP, Shakespeare festival etc. But if you're at all interested in the history of the area from the first settlers to the mechanised mining of the 20th century then don't miss this 3$ bargain. There's an amazing range of exhibits including buildings and mechanical equipment moved in from the surrounding area. Suitable for all ages as many hands-on exhibits for kids like me (I was born in the 1940's).

“Neat, from what we saw”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This seems very neat from what we could see, but it was CLOSED on Sunday. We were very disappointed in that situation, but still read all interpretative signs that were open, looked at many displays in front, and also looked at displays in the area behind the closed fence. Lots of picnic tables. We will come back when open.

“Lots of great exhibits and info”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

This is a bargain for $3. We most enjoyed some snippets of histories from those who had worked in the southern utah parks in the early years - it gave a good glimpse into life at that time.
Great collection of early transportation and farming implements.
Worth the stop, especially if you have children between the ages of about 6 & 12.

“Nice Educational Stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

After reading some good reviews about this museum, I decided to stop by while in town. Not the biggest museum in the world, but should take you 60-90 minutes to tour. You can't go wrong for $3 Great free parking, and only a mile or so from the Historic Downtown.

“Hard to believe such a great place is so inexpensive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

The rain that kept us from hiking turned out to be a blessing in disguise; we spent about 3 hours at this museum and that was without all the exhibits being in operation. We got in for half price by mentioning the ad in our motel room; but at full price, $3, it would still have been an incredible bargain. Can only reiterate the praises others have given of this museum.
