My husband spotted the caboose outside the museum as we drove past and decided to pull in. I thought I was going to be dragged around another collection of trains and farm machinery (and to be honest there is a huge collection of seed drills, hand ploughs and hay bailers etc) but this museum is really about life as it would have been for the settlers who founded the iron industry in the Cedar City area. I really enjoyed looking at the old horse drawn carriages and being able to sit inside a Wells Fargo coach was a real treat. My husband enjoyed panning for gold and I had a go at doing the laundry using a wash board and old mangle. There are plenty of activities for children and adults alike. I also enjoyed being able to look around the old pioneer home and school plus much, much more. Unfortunately the small gauge train display wasn't working but some local volunteers were using the old fashioned spinning wheels and looms and that was fun to watch. A great place to spend an hour or two. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.
