Check-ins: 9
The permanent exhibits in the Zion Human History Museum display the Southern Paiute culture, historic pioneer settlement, and Zion's growth as a national park, as well as the rich human history of the park. The Human History Museum also explains how water has affected Zion as both a creator and destroyer and how water created the incredible scenery that makes Zion famous! The museum plays a video every half hour which provides a fantastic summary of the park. Rangers are always available to answer your questions. Books, maps, posters, and other souvenirs are obtainable in the Zion Forever Project bookstore. Past temporary exhibits have reproductions of historic Union Pacific Railroad lodging, Civilian Conservation Corp journals, park employee photographs, and more. The location of The Human History Museum is one-half mile north of the park's south entrance on the main park road or 11 miles west of the east gate. Be sure to check Zion National Park facility hours and current conditions for further information about hours, directions, and reopening updates. Reserved parking spaces are available with a ramp leading to the building. The Human History Museum may be temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Access to the back patio remains open.
