Description

This fascinating museum has three-dimensional models, powerful photographs, and interpretive exhibits that describe the complicated geologic story of the area. Be treated to useful explanations about how the canyon was formed via the deposition of rock layers, the uplift of the Colorado Plateau, and the carving of Grand Canyon. The bookstore within the museum is a great place to browse for gifts and there are also wonderful views from this spot.

Great little museum. Informative exhibits and big windows overlooking the canyon. Great spot for viewing especially if it is cold/windy outside!
