Moab Museum Opening Soon

Re-Imagining Our Museum

The Moab Museum is closed while we remodel both floors, increase space for our Collection and growing Library/Archive, and design an entirely new visitor experience. The Museum will re-open in early 2020 to tell stories that interpret the natural and human history of southeastern Utah and our corner of the Colorado Plateau. The Museum will continue to preserve, store and exhibit objects donated by community members, and maintain its commitment to the individuals, families, businesses and community organizations that have entrusted the Museum with their history and heritage.


Check back here and find us on Facebook  for the special events and programs that are being planned prior to our re-opening.



Small Museum. Big Stories.

For 60 years the Museum has been telling the story of the Moab region with exhibits, oral histories, school and public programs, and publications from its galleries and library. Recently, a new vision for the Museum has emerged featuring a revitalized visitor experience, expanded school programming, and improved access to the recorded history of the Colorado Plateau.

This new vision will come into sharper focus in early 2020, when a completely remodeled building opens with a new, as-yet untitled visitor experience that interprets local human presence throughout geologic time. This new exhibit will introduce visitors to our region, be a source of pride for locals, and serve as a springboard to a new future for the Museum.

We are making progress.
