Since 1958, the Moab Museum has been dedicated to preserving and sharing Moab's cultural and natural history. A small museum with big stories to tell, our renovated exhibit space highlights both the human history of the Moab area and the geology of the dramatic landscape, and our programming, publications, and outreach efforts help visitors and locals alike gain a deeper understanding of the region.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Mondays are free, We were here on a Thursday. We paid $5 each.

The museum is small. It has 2 large rooms and a small room downstairs. There were prehistoric (dinosaurs, fossils and geology) artifacts and data in the small room.

The larger rooms contained artifacts and displays on Uranium mining in the area, movies filmed in the area and more.

There's a 2nd floor that we never walked up to. It looked to have some local art on display and likely had more area history.

We felt it was worth the $5 and hour of our time.

Thank you for visiting and leaving a review. You left only three stars but I can't see a reason we weren't five from the review you left. We would love to hear your thoughts on how to make our little museum a five star attraction! Happy you visited!

Fun little museum! Has several casts of dinosaur bones found in the area, including some skulls and a skeleton. Has a good bit of information and exhibits about the history of the town. Not many interactive exhibits, so might be a bit boring for kids, but for adults who are into History, this is a pretty quick stop. If you're in town on Monday, the Museum is free on that day!

We visited Moab last year and somehow missed this. We are so glad we went this year. It's not a large museum but has loads of interesting exhibits all about Moab and the surrounding area. The staff were very friendly. A special exhibition entitled New Harmonies had just opened when we visited. It was all about the history of american music and was really interesting - it has been touring Utah and other states and finishes in January 2011 so try and catch it if you can: http://www.museumonmainstreet.org/newharmonies/harmonies_sched.htm
The museum is just along the street from the Moab Information Center and there is plenty of free parking nearby.

A small museum but well worth a visit. They are aware of their geologic and natural history and help us visitors understand it with detailed displays.

Must-see and it's air conditioned!!! After a day of looking at rocks, stop inside for some great historical exhibits including an exhibit on barbed wire! I know you don't think much about barbed wire but what would we do without it? Livestock would be everywhere! The museum even has dinosaur eggs to look it and real geiger counters. The radium sample was removed from the display though because we'd probably glow in the dark if it wasn't. This museum does think about its visitors! Anyway, plan at least an hour, two if it's greater than 95 degrees outside and that's a strong possibility in the summer.

This is probably the most underrated attraction in Moab. The little museum has great exhibits on local and regional history, as well as geology and paleontology.

Took a break from hiking, went into town to visit this museum. It's located east of the information center. Price is $5pp, less for seniors, kids, military. Barbara who sold us tickets, was very friendly and helpful with questions. The museum has displays about early Moab, mining, dinosaurs, recreation, films made in the area, Cowboys, Native Americans, geology. There is some nice art pieces from local artists. We spent about 1.5 hrs here. There are some hands on displays for kids. Enjoyed the visit.

An interesting collection tracing the history of the area. We particularly enjoyed the short movie on the film industry and the exhibition of quilts by local artists. The museum could definitely do with more space!

Too hot to be outside in Moab on June 27th in the afternoon, so we sought out a small museum to explore and this one was perfect. Fascinating display of artifacts, along with quilts and artwork from local artisans. Provided a lovely and educational and cool afternoon for us. They are fundraising to build a bigger museum and i hope they are successful
