Yes, there is so much about Moab and Utah I never knew. Uranium prospectors, dinosaur bones, native American history, such a cute compact place to go to get a perspective on Moab

This compact but very interesting museum is only one city block from the visitor information center. It contains exhibits on - local geology, fossils, history, movies and artists. The people working there are a wealth of local knowledge. Well worth a visit.
