We decided to turn off the main road on our walk through Kanab and stumbled upon this amazing find! Typically I avoid museums like this after too many as a child, however Emily quickly talked us into the tour and we LOVED it!!! She was so knowledge, not only about the history of Kanab, but also current information about the town and region. She was a wealth of knowledge!!! The house and history is amazingly preserved and presented. We learned so much!!!

What an interesting free tour! Emily was a great guide, telling us about the history of Kanab and this beautiful home. It was filled with antiques, family photos, period furniture, and was expertly restored. For me, as a history buff, I was totally engaged. What a nice surprise! Thanks Emily!!

A great experience! An exceptionally well preserved home built in the 1800's. The investment by the Town of Kanab to create and staff the museum was an outstanding idea. Tina & Emily were very good tour guides. Our 8 & 10 year olds had fun especially with Emily in making 3D hot air balloons.

This was a great activity to break up our time outdoors in the surrounding parks. A short walk away from the heart of Kanab, the hosts were incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The home was beautiful and interesting, a step back into a simpler time. And on top of all that, it was free!

Made the reservation online and it worked perfectly. You can use your phone to scan barcodes for exterior and interior rooms (the upstairs is closed). They are clearly being careful due to COVID-19, which we appreciated. The volunteer who let us in was friendly, engaging and knowledgeable. It is such an interesting bit of history with photos and period furnishings. Highly recommended!

Enjoyed the self-guided tour of Heritage House. Easy instructions in the pamphlets complete with QR Codes. Exterior and interior tour. Covid policy you have to book interior tour time on line since House is not staffed all the time. Tour is free. Interesting to learn the history of the house and it’s inhabitants. Filled with period furnishings some original to the house. Good activity to do if you’re in the area.

We had just an exceptional experience at the Heritage House with Emily as our tour guide. We were passing through Kanab on our way to Zion and upon spotting the beautiful architecture of the home we knew we had to stop. The tour was informative and incredibly interesting, and left us wanting to learn more about the history of Kanab, the history of Utah, and about the Mormon religion. We've found ourselves talking about the tour and the things we learned throughout the rest of our trip through Utah. Thank you to Emily and Kanab, we will be back!

Wonderful experience. Indeed the best little museum in Kanab. So much of the house hasn't been modernized. Like the original kitchen stove and room heating stoves throughout the house. Amazing unfinished upstairs where a dozen plus children of all ages reigned.

Tour guide Emily was fun and so well informed. Jolly Good!

Emily helped us appreciate this whole experience in a personal way. She cares so much that it's more than a job to her. We left this tour appreciating much more about the community than I could have imagined. We're very glad we visited.

What a fun surprise this place was. We stopped by on a whim and our tour guide Emily was fantastic and incredibly enthusiastic. We learned tons of history about Kanab and Utah in general, the home is well-preserved and the free tours start at the top of the hour. Do yourself a favor and pop in to this beautiful home and piece of history!
