The basics

The Zion Human History Museum sits in the mix with South Campground and Zion Canyon Visitor Center, steps from the Pa’rus Trail and the Virgin River—about a half-mile (0.8km) from the South Entrance. It was the main visitor center up until 2002.

Once inside, you’ll wander artifact-laden exhibits devoted to geology, flora and fauna, human survival, and community, from the Mormon pioneers to CCC railroad workers to the Indigenous Anasazi. Expect 3D maps, artifacts like woven baskets and leather canteens, and rangers available to answer questions—there’s also a 22-minute video that’s a great overview of the park; it’s shown on the hour and half-hour.

A big past

Humans have lived here since the end of the last ice age. These first peoples—12,000 years ago—tracked mammoths, ate sloths and camels, and lived in a world full of wild megafauna. It wouldn’t be for 10,000+ years that humans would begin farming Zion, utilizing the Virgin River to keep their crops growing throughout the desert’s drier seasons.
