Was surprised at how interesting this museum was for such a small town. The displays are well done and feature many different eras from the dinosaurs to the present day. It's worth the time and Mondays are free but please put a donation in the jar; it's worth it.

The history of Moab is chronicled quite well. The movie industry and the uranium industry, as well as the LDS (Mormon) history are done well.

We spent a couple of hours : very interesting, with different focus. We particularly liked the part on uranium mining and also the video about all the films that were shot around Moab. It's really worth the time.

It's a small museum with a lot of artifacts and history. It was disappointing to know that they had removed the scalp of a pioneer, taken by an American Indian for political correctness. Moab has a great pioneer history, but is also the site of winter gatherings of local tribes, along with burials of the now extinct, Anasazi Indians. Moab... More
