Arches National Park Sights

John Wesley Powell River History Museum

Fodor's Review

At this riverfront museum you can see what it was like to travel down the Green and Colorado rivers in the 1800s. A series of displays tracks the Powell Party's arduous, dangerous 1869 journey, and visitors can watch the award-winning film Journey Into the Unknown for a cinematic taste of the white-water adventure. The center also houses the River Runner's Hall of Fame, a tribute to those who have followed in Powell's wake. An art gallery reserved for works thematically

linked to river exploration is also on-site.
