Explore The History of Page

The Powell Museum & Archives is a must-visit destination for anyone interested in the history and exploration of the American West. Named after the famous explorer, John Wesley Powell, who led the first successful expedition down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon, the museum offers a fascinating look at the natural and cultural history of the region. 

Opened in 1969, the Powell Museum & Archives showcases a wide range of exhibits covering the history of the area. From paleontology and geology, to the first residents of the plateau and birth of Page, this is the perfect place to immerse yourself in the heart of the Grand Circle.

Don’t forget to step inside Glen Canyon Conservancy‘s flagship location, next door to the museum, for area information from knowledgeable specialists or browse the collection of maps, books, gifts, gear and more.
