  • Really really cool! The history of the area is amazing! The displays in this little museum are well thought out and the entry fee is very reasonable. I loved learning about the way the natives dealt with the desert and lived in harmony with it. My favorite was the replicas of the adobe homes out behind the museum itself. If you are visiting the Valley of Fire or the surrounding area then I definitely recommend a stop here.
  • A very nice little museum. If you are in the area and have an extra hour this is worth a visit. The building itself was constructed by the CCC in the 30s. This was worth the time and $5 to visit. Not a destination in itself but a nice addition to a tour of the area.
  • Lovely little museum and well worth the visit. Helpful staff. Watch the movies in the little theatre and take the quiz.
  • Wow, is this a hidden gem! Wonderful artifacts and great interpretive information. Don't underestimate this place if you have an interest in Ancient Puebloan (Anasazi) culture.
  • Cool little Museum which gives a good history of the ancient Pueblos and Anasazi people in the area. The interior of the museum is built around a historic ruins site, and it was cool to see. There are a few films you can watch which are neat. Also, there is a meet Recreation outside in the back of the Pueblo and Anasazi houses. The staff was friendly as well. If you enjoy museums, check it out. The price is right. My son had a blast when we visited here.
