Museum of Moab

Founded in 1958, the Museum of Moab is dedicated to preserving and presenting the unique geology, culture, and history of Moab. After spending some time operating out of a small four-room adobe house, the museum eventually found a new and larger home at its current location. The museum displays a variety of dinosaur bones, footprints, and a full cast skeleton of a dinosaur. Other exhibits include rocks, mining, and displays on pioneer history. The museum offers a variety of education outreach activities such as lectures, special events, and workshops, while the Experiential Education Centers provide hands-on activities for children.
