The displays are well done and chronical the first people and those that came after. They have a nice collection of artifacts. The lady at the desk was extremely pleasant and informative. Worth the time to stop and walk through it.

Must-see and it's air conditioned!!! After a day of looking at rocks, stop inside for some great historical exhibits including an exhibit on barbed wire! I know you don't think much about barbed wire but what would we do without it? Livestock would be everywhere!...More

This is probably the most underrated attraction in Moab. The little museum has great exhibits on local and regional history, as well as geology and paleontology.

A fun and informative museum with a friendly staff to answer any questions you might have about the Moab area. Nice focus on ancient pottery and baskets.

Spent an hour in here. Great history of the city and area. Have an amazing relief map of the area that was cut out by hand from wood.

A collection of items perhaps important to locals but uninstructive to the visiting tourist. Not worth a visit unfortunately unless you are already at the nearby Moab visitir centre & have time to kill.More

We are sorry you didn't enjoy the museum. We do realize there is a lot of information in the museum and some of it is less than instructive. We are already in the planning and development stages of remodeling our space and overhauling the exhibits...More

Lots of history packed into a small space! Well organized and laid out. Exhibits include uranium mining, prehistoric artifacts, Native American history, and beautiful exhibit of polished rocks. Very helpful staff. We enjoyed ourselves for our hour visit.
