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.

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.

I love history. This museum gives a good overview of Powell and how he became who he was and did what he did in exploring the Colorado River. It also features stories of others who attempted, successfully or not, to navigate this waterway. Also gives...More
