Fodor's Expert Review Edge of the Cedars State Park Museum

Blanding Museum/Gallery Fodor's Choice

Possibly the most interesting state park in Utah, Edge of the Cedars is one of the nation's foremost museums dedicated to the Ancestral Puebloan culture. Behind the museum, an interpretive trail leads to an ancient village that they once inhabited. Portions of the village have been partially excavated and visitors can climb down a ladder into a 1,000-year-old ceremonial room called a kiva. The museum displays a variety of pots, baskets, spear points, and rare artifacts—even a pair of sandals said to date back 1,500 years.
