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.
