This is one of the best museums that my wife and I have ever visited. They have a fantastic collection of housewares, clothing, hand tools and firearms used by the early pioneers in southwest Utah. We are in our mid seventies and have visited many small rural museums in our coast to coast travels. We saw many items that we... More

Our family loved the museum and found lots of interesting and wonderful things to look at. It never ceases to amaze me all the things the pioneers did. They raised cotton in the "Dixie" area of St. George, actually grew silk worms and made silk products, the dental and other tools they had were interesting, china, jewelry, dishes, tools, weaving,...

The volunteers took me around the museum and told me about the artifacts they have. My favorites were the guns and violins. And of course Brother Brigham bed.

We were greeted at the door by volunteers. She provided a personal tour, but I don't think we could have looked around on our own. There were some articles by LDS leaders and background about them. We appreciated the info on cotton and silk beginnings. This museum is heavy on the photos and quite a few repetitious items. Free but... More

When I moved here I didnt know a lot about Utah and the LDS community/history. Went here for a scout tour and was very impressed with the museum and the folks working there. Very patient and took time to help the kids (and me) know more about the settlers that came here and started this city. Recommend it to anyone.

We ventured into this place as part of a walking tour. From the moment we stepped in, we weren't left alone. That was sort of disappointing because I would have liked to look at things that interested me, at my own pace, like most museums. There is a lot of stuff packed inside and if you are interested in Utah... More

I love antiques and this museum is so full of articles from the past that it was hard to take it all in.The museum is housed in a family home from the 1800's and the docents are friendly and knowledgeable. It is the first stop on the walking tour of St George and a real treat for history buffs.

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.
