Edge of the Cedars State Park Museum

Utah, Utah.

Discover the past at this family-friendly museum complex that houses the largest collection of Ancestral Puebloan pottery and relics in southeastern Utah. Edge of the Cedars includes an excavated and restored kiva (a partially subterranean ceremonial room within a pueblo), giving visitors a glimpse into the ancient life of Anasazi lifestyle and architecture.

As you travel through the park, you will get to check out petroglyphs, Puebloan basketry, jewelry, pottery, tools, a Horse Rock Ruin basketry collection, a Macaw feather sash and more. The museum is an excellent stop on Utah's Road to Mighty and the Trail of the Ancients Scenic Byway, especially when combined with nearby Hovenweep National Monument, Cedar Mesa cliff dwellings and Natural Bridges National Monument.
