Frontier Homestead State Park Museum tells the story of development in Iron County when in the 1850s, Brigham Young sent Mormon missionaries here to mine and process iron. Museum displays include horse-drawn vehicles used from 1850 to 1920 and a collection of pioneer artifacts. An iron industry exhibit features the only known remaining artifact from the original foundry - the town bell.

In addition to the permanent collections, changing special exhibits highlight artists from the local region, as well as rarely seen artifacts from the museum's collections. Other items of interest include several historic cabins, a large collection of horse-drawn farm equipment, and a replicated pioneer household.

  • Our family really enjoyed our visit. I highly recommend to anyone visiting the area or even locals! There is so much to see, experience and learn about. It's a beautiful environment and a wonderful time capsule! Everything is beautifully kept up! There are many hands on and photo ops including props. Just so much fun!
  • A great place to take the family. They have good hands on activities and fun historical knowledge. The special events hosted there are very enjoyable. I took my family to the sheep sheering event and the frontier folk festival. Both were enjoyable for my wife and I and our young ones.
