•Permanent exhibits display the rich human history of Zion National Park. Showcasing American Indian culture, historic pioneer settlement, and Zion's growth as a national park, the Human History Museum also illustrates the effects of water in Zion. Both creator and destroyer, water is why people have traveled through and settled in Zion. Water creates the scenery and sanctuary that makes Zion famous.

•Temporary exhibits have included replicas of historic Union Pacific Railroad lodging, Civilian Conservation Corp dairies, park employee photographs, and much more.

•Free 22 minute video, shown every half hour, provides excellent park overview. Rangers are available to answer questions. Books, maps, posters, and film are available in the museum bookstore.
