I was pretty impressed by this little state park. It's right in cedar city and after living here for five years I finally got around to visiting it. It has a lot of historical items from the 1800s and 1900s and good info on the history of cedar city.

Spend an hour or two to learn what folks in the area did to make a life out of their surroundings from the mid 1800s forward. This is time well-spent. Seniors get a $2 discount!

Museum has tons of old artifacts and history about the local mountain areas and Cedar City. There are many old horse drawn coaches inside and outside. Vintage farm equipment used by the settlers way back when. Even an old style victorian house you can enter and tour yourself. The museum front desk employee was very helpful and nice. To the...

I loved the history this museum represents! I wasn't there at a time when the costumed employees are there but I bet it's really fun when they are! Worth every penny! Played a bit of horseshoes and got a ringer when no one was around! Great gift shop!

Cheap way to spend an hour or ninety minutes looking at items during pioneer times. Only cost four dollars to go through museum and outside exhibits.

If someone had told me I would have spent over 2 hours here, I would have considered them crazy. Well how wrong was I? This is great museum, full of artefacts showing the story of the early settlers of Cedar City. I especially enjoyed the old coaches. There is a large collection of early agricultural machines, and really helpful enthusiastic... More

Outside there are several buildings you can go into. This would be a fantastic place for kids. There is alot of hands on things,... More

What a GREAT place!! It was so interesting to see his people lived many years. We have it made with all our conveniences. We even remembered things from when we were youngsters. The price for admittance was very reasonable. Out of state seniors is $4 per person.
