This is a great place if you want to learn about the local history. It has exhibits about the iron mines, pioneer life, stage coaches and other transpotation, sheep herding, early Indian culture, and lots and lots of early farming equipment.

I took my three kids (ages 11-7) and we easily spent over an hour walking through the exhibits both inside the building and out. They had interactive exhibits just for kids that taught about wagons, building log cabins, how to make iron, and more.

It cost $3 per person.

It was great. We will stop again next time we are in Cedar City.
