The museum is free. It doesn't have many displays. They sell tickets to various tourist destinations, and that is probably the museum's biggest draw. The gift shop is small but does offer quite a variety of books. Excellent staff.

This museum provided us with a wonderful introduction to the history of the area. John Wesley Powell was a brave and brilliant man. The museum also had information about other explorers and adventurers who traveled this land.
