    Stopped here on a whim with friends. We had no idea what to expect. We went on a hot summer Sunday when it was closed. However, we walked around reading history etched in those granite slabs. We wishe...  more »

    Beautiful setting with mountains in the background. Post office and buildings all locked up and closed on Saturday. Self guided tour of granite monuments to the god of war.  more »

    Top day out, met a great couple, Shaun and Gaz, only thing I would say is the museum glosses over the importance of concrete.  more »

    Coolest "history museum" I've ever visited. Come rain or shine. Try to interrupt the meaning of life and imagine future "visitors" using these monuments to understand our culture. Unique and bizarre. Worth the stop.

    This was placed was weird. From the highway you see a church on a hill and a pyramid, and the first thing you think is cult. The weird maze, the compounds that look like people may live there, but there's absolutely no sign of life is creepy. The weird maze that's called the museum of history, actually looks like a big crop circle. Very strange place. It's in the absolute middle of nowhere. And the book it's named after which is about a dragon that lives in the center of the earth? Creepy. Really wouldn't be surprised if weird stuff happens here during its off season. The stairway to heaven in the front is weird because there's nothing to protect you from falling off? It's overall a weird place and I wouldn't be surprised if this was place is for something more than they're telling.

    Since it is in the middle of desert, visit early morning or late evening. Was a spur of the moment stop for us. Shops and restaurant was not open, and admission was "On your honor" $3.00 a person. We paid as we left as it was worth the donation. We thought it would be a history of granite, but rather it was history engraved in granite. US Veterans and history of Korean War. Alot of the monuments were in English and French. Inspiring.

    Hours of reading preserved in granite, out in the heat. Don't worry if you can't go soon, the creator says it will be here for about 3000 years. Worth a visit!!
