This museum displayed a lot of replicas. It was very small with just a few interesting displays. There were displays explaining the geological progression of the area.

An interesting collection tracing the history of the area. We particularly enjoyed the short movie on the film industry and the exhibition of quilts by local artists. The museum could definitely do with more space!

Fascinating display of artifacts, along with quilts and artwork from local artisans. Provided a lovely and educational and cool afternoon for us. They are fundraising to build a bigger museum and i hope... More

Stopped in while out on a walk - this is very close to Moab Coffee Roasters. Well worth the time to stop and visit. Closed on Sunday's - no admission fees on Monday. Interesting exhibits and some local culture.

Go back in time and trace the history of Moab. Plenty of artifacts on display and very informative including how Moab got it's name. Park immediately outside on the road and just walk in.

Many small and larger towns have a local museum showing how pioneers lived, the local economy's booms and busts, geology of the area and the pre-white history of the area. Moab's museum is no different. Some interesting stuff, some stuff typical of this type of museum and some mistakes in identifying exhibits. Rather small, it has a fairly large (for... More

This museum is incredible. They have displays of rocks, minerals, fossils and mining equipment. They also have dinosaurs and some great movie stuff - really great. And antiques that I've never seen before - some stuff upstairs that are worth the stair climb!!!

I went to the museum to meet the Curator John Foster, who is also the Author of the Cambrian World. John is a wonderful person who took time out of his day to look at a couple of fossils my wife had found. He took the time to talk to us about several of the exhibits at the museum. This... More
