Interesting hearing the stories of the pioneers.

We thought the docents were wonderful. Very pleasant and so full of stories. They took the time to tell us about how and why the first settlers came, showed us interesting... read more

Boring, but I guess it's a museum. Still, not at all worth the time. Go hiking instead. Nothing to do and nothing to see.

This contains an interesting collection of pioneer artifacts. It's likely not a high level of interest for kids, unless they have a particular interest in such things. I found the early maps of the area one of the more interesting exhibits.

The Docent we met was a wonderful treat. She was pleasant and allowed us to explore the many items throughout the multiple rooms adding little facts as we went along. I had two teenage girls with me so the museum experience was average to what I would expect as it was a lot of stuff to take in. We tried... More

My wife and I were warmly greeted when we entered by a couple of very knowledgeable docents, who took the time to explain a number of the exhibits, and one of them gave us a special tour of the basement area that is normally off limits to the public.

We thought the docents were wonderful. Very pleasant and so full of stories. They took the time to tell us about how and why the first settlers came, showed us interesting artifacts and overall made the items come to life. After talking to us, we were left to wander the exhibits by ourselves.

This is a real bargain. For $3.00 you can visit this place and get on a bus and visit other historic site. They have docents who are very well informed and provide great insite into pioneer life. Actors also provide information about the lives of early pioneers.

The Daughters of Utah Pioneer museum is a wonderful museum chucked full of all kinds of pioneer memorabilia. It is a lovely building built to especially hold all the stuff. There is also lots of pioneer info available.

We visited this "museum" on our first day in town hoping to get a sense of the history of St. George. We got none. This place is basically just a warehouse of dusty antiques that were found around Utah. Still, we would have spent more time if it weren't for the unpleasant, elderly volunteers that followed our family from room... More

I was astonished at the memorabilia that this home housed. Each room is filled with photos, furniture and artifacts of the early settlers of Southern Utah. The docents are so informative and the displays were amazing. I could have spend hours in this museum. I was alone but any age would enjoy a visit here.
