With a $6 entrance fee, per-person, it's hard to justify missing this little museum packed with good information. We started with a short movie about the first white explorers of the area, then moved into the main museum. The top floor (main entrance) has artifacts from the Native Americans, a mineral display, and many sections about Major Powell - from his youth to old-age. The basement level has a section about the ancient ocean that once covered the region and a small room with 3 different early boats that were used by river pioneers, one being a replica of the type that Powell's team had used. The gift shop has many nice books as well as the usual assortment of t-shirts and postcards too. They even have a few wheelchairs available which my wife took advantage of so that she didn't have to stand on her injured foot. For a small town museum they have done a very nice of presenting a good bit of relevant information.
