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

Historical artifacts from the native Americans who lived in the region over the past centuries. If you have time after visiting the Valley of Fire, this is an interesting stop with replicas of native American dwellings, and artifacts.

The Lost City Museum was built by the CCC conservation corps in 1935, and houses a fine collection of artifacts gathered from the nearby Pueblo Grande de Nevada. The indoor portion of the museum includes an actual excavated pit house. Don't miss the outstanding early photography of John Hillers, a member of the original Powell exploration, famous for his photography... More
