Edge of the Cedars State Park & Museum

Visit Edge of the Cedars State Park Museum and learn of the ancient people who lived in the Four Corners and Southeast Utah over 1000 years ago. The museum features state of the art exhibits on pre-historic and contemporary Native American culture. An authentic Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) village is located at the park. This village was inhabited by the ancestors of contemporary Puebloan peoples from AD 825 to 1125. Climb down a ladder to enter the 1,000-year-old kiva. View the largest collection of Ancestral Puebloan pottery on display in the Four Corners area. Enjoy programs for adults and children, including archaeology and art exhibitions, storytelling, craft workshops, and the annual Four Corners Indian Art Festival held the first Saturday of May. Park facilities include a very short, paved interpretive trail around the ruin, landscaping with native plants and outdoor sculptures, and a picnic area (sorry, no camping).
