The museum boasts interpretive exhibits detailing the life of John Wesley Powell that are second to none. As the namesake of the museum, Powell’s impact on the history of the Colorado Plateau and river culture in this region is felt throughout the museum. From his days as a soldier in the Union Army, to his prominent role in the founding of the USGS and the Bureau of Ethnology, our exhibits on Major Powell cannot be missed.
