  • Quite a find for a small town. Great museum, gift shop and a movie on the history of maping the Green River and surrounding areas.  more »
  • This was an outstanding tribute the an amazing American hero. Worth every penny. Don't miss peeking into the basement room off the main room of displays. One can see some dinosaur skeletal remains and core samples of Utah's rock formations. The gift shop was the perfect ending to an engaging and educational experience.
  • Love this museum. The entrance donation fee is under ten dollars, there is a great exhibit hall with loads of information, pictures, artifacts, and real boats used by the earliest explorers. They have a theatre featuring a film about the incredible journey of Powell and his compatriots into the great unknown, in addition to a gallery with revolving shows and a cool shop hosting gifts, memorabilia, and southwestern art and jewelry. Stop by on your way to booking a trip down the river for yourself with Holiday River Expeditions next door.
