Interesting hearing the stories of the pioneers.

We thought the docents were wonderful. Very pleasant and so full of stories. They took the time to tell us about how and why the first settlers came, showed us interesting... read more

We ventured into this place as part of a walking tour. From the moment we stepped in, we weren't left alone. That was sort of disappointing because I would have liked to look at things that interested me, at my own pace, like most museums. There is a lot of stuff packed inside and if you are interested in Utah... More

I love antiques and this museum is so full of articles from the past that it was hard to take it all in.The museum is housed in a family home from the 1800's and the docents are friendly and knowledgeable. It is the first stop on the walking tour of St George and a real treat for history buffs.

Boring, but I guess it's a museum. Still, not at all worth the time. Go hiking instead. Nothing to do and nothing to see.

This contains an interesting collection of pioneer artifacts. It's likely not a high level of interest for kids, unless they have a particular interest in such things. I found the early maps of the area one of the more interesting exhibits.

The Docent we met was a wonderful treat. She was pleasant and allowed us to explore the many items throughout the multiple rooms adding little facts as we went along. I had two teenage girls with me so the museum experience was average to what I would expect as it was a lot of stuff to take in. We tried... More

My wife and I were warmly greeted when we entered by a couple of very knowledgeable docents, who took the time to explain a number of the exhibits, and one of them gave us a special tour of the basement area that is normally off limits to the public.

We thought the docents were wonderful. Very pleasant and so full of stories. They took the time to tell us about how and why the first settlers came, showed us interesting artifacts and overall made the items come to life. After talking to us, we were left to wander the exhibits by ourselves.

This is a real bargain. For $3.00 you can visit this place and get on a bus and visit other historic site. They have docents who are very well informed and provide great insite into pioneer life. Actors also provide information about the lives of early pioneers.
