As we were on our way to Mesquite NV having gone through Lake Mead, we had been told about this museum. It was well worth the stop. It cost 5.00 a person, is very neatly kept and has tons of artifacts and information. It talks of the history of the area and the Native Ameircan culture from the Lake Mead... More

We stumbled across the Lost City Museum when visiting Overton. It is a very nice museum, well worth the visit. The building is lovely, built in the 1930s by the CCC. The displays are well organized and very interesting. At a whole $5 admission fees it was a great visit!

A must see if you want to learn a little native history or in any way archeologically minded. There was a dig here and they put the museum over the exact place they were digging and recreated a scene of how it was right inside the building. Outside there are a few re-created adobe huts, but you cannot go into... More

This is an Indian Ruins museum. It tells the history of an prehistoric people. It has displays of pottery, clothing, & tools found on the park. There is also ruins to explore. They also have an ink stamp to collect.

Small museum. You'll see information and exhibits very much like this all through Utah. Suitable parking only for autos and smaller motorhomes without a tow. Tiny gift shop. There is a 5 pp fee. Really not worth the stop.

My husband and I had been to this museum twice, the first time on our own and the recent when our niece and her friend visited us from Asia. Thought it would be a good idea to introduce some native American history to both of them and the exhibits displaying the history of the Pueblo Indians which included artifacts from... More

We have driven by this museum a bunch of times and never stopped to see what is was about. It is very interesting and the staff members are very helpful. It only takes about forty five minutes to an hour to get through it. Worth the stop.

They have quite a few artifacts and written material in their museum for being so small. They have replicated Pueblo buildings outside. It is educational. They do have a gift shop as well. Also they have a lot of parking. Cost is $5 per adult.

We had bypassed this place on our trip to The Valley of Fire, but a few days later stopped in to see what they had to offer. We loved this place. In a cooler season you can explore the pueblos outside or have a picnic lunch on the covered patio. Inside there are exhibits showing the history of the Pueblo... More
