Dan O'Laurie Canyon Country Museum
The best way to gain an appreciation of an area is to learn its history. The Dan O'Laurie Canyon Country Museum showcases the history of Canyon Country. The museum includes artifacts from early inhabitants, information on the Spanish Trail, artifacts of the uranium boom and bust and other intriguing history exhibits.
The exhibits on history provide a great introduction to your ventures in the desert. As the popularity of the Colorado Plateau increases, perhaps there will some day be an exhibit full of pedals, handlebars and rims left by those who came, saw and were conquered by the desert.
