Loved the State Park. There is an archaeological site out the back of a pueblo and great artefacts in side. It was a good stop on the way from Bryce to Torrey on the Scenic Byway. I'd recommend stayin... read more »

Fun stop on the way to Escalante. Our main reason for stopping here was to find the Geocache located inside, but we enjoyed the exhibits and I was happy to see the two teens we brought along did too. The only downside was that the pictures of amazing ruins they draw you in with are actually fake. They are photos of a replica Anasazi home. The actual ruins are only the foundations of what used to be their homes.
Small museum, but worth the inexpensive admission. There's a nice quiet park out front with picnic tables and almost-daily food trucks. Inside, there's lots to learn about the Anasazi and out back there's a lifesize recreation of the to explore, along with the original site.
There's really not much to see. The museum is very nice, but very small. They have a replica of what the old houses looked like, but the only authentic ruins were a few rocks 6-8" tall laid out in the dirt and a large hole in the ground. The drive there on Highway 12 was terrifying because of the great heights, steep cliffs with no guard rails, and blind curves. It was definitely not worth the long drive to see so little.
Love the artifacts and all that is there... watch to educational movie!
Not a very exciting Museum, but stop there for a map of Escalante park!
