  • The museum is free. It doesn't have many displays. They sell tickets to various tourist destinations, and that is probably the museum's biggest draw. The gift shop is small but does offer quite a vari...  more »
  • This is not a large museum, but it packs a lot into a small space. When I was here there was 1 exhibit being refurbished, but it was still worth the visit. It is open 9-5 seven days per week. Admissio...  more »

  • The ladies at the museum were very informative! Really enjoyed the museum, beautiful art and interesting facts about John Powell and his trip through the Grand Canyon, he even had ties to Maine! With a house built there and the bed frame on display.
  • Not much in way of artifacts. There was part of an old bed he died on at that was it. Nothing connected with his epic river voyage that defined his fame. It's good if you bored in Page.
  • Great view of lake Powell, great service and very informative.
  • Very helpful people at this visitor center with great info on the area. It is $3 an adult to see the museum, which was worth the brief browse through the displays on John Wesley Powell's life, the lake and river, and local Indians.
  • Interesting. There's a dinosaur skull.
