The staff are warm and welcoming. I know it can get a bit overwhelming during the busy season, but these folks are warm and friendly and inviting. They help with directions, things to see and do, and offer some discounts on tours.

Excellent history of the geology of the area, JW Powell, and his trip down the Colorado River, and the development of the Glen Canyon Dam. Museum is free and only asks for a donation.

This museum is also a vendor for local lake tours. There is much to be learned about Glen Canyon and also local activities. Very interesting, small, but packed with information.

It's free. You can spend 30-60 minutes learning about Powell and the general area. It's time well spent. They also have tourist info and they're helpful.

Lots of information available about the geology and people. Yes, it is small but clean and neat with friendly workers. Boat outside is worth a good look. Worth the small donation.

Located across the street from the Amtelope Canyon tour office. We stopped in because we were early for the tour. Museum presented a lot of history of the area, including a "trading post" exhibit.
