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.

Yes, its a museum yet its so much more. Features local artists in a variety of media and you can purchase their amazing original work at reasonable prices. This takes up about half the space - then there's the Powell/River museum and a lot of...More

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.

The Museum itself is small and very well done. Doubles as a Visitor Center. Employees/volunteers are knowledgeable of the area. What I recommend most is the gift shop. High quality local artists have their works displayed and for sale. If I were looking for a...More

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.
