The Edge of the Cedars Museum is the repository for all Anasazi artifacts uncovered in Southeast Utah. It also has the finest exhibits and information about who the Anasazi were and how they lived. I consider it a field school dedicated to teaching all the ways of the Anasazi as best as modern scientists have been able to reconstruct.

The museum sits on the site of an Anasazi ruin that was discovered by white settlers in the area in 1905. Archaeologists and students from Weber State College carefully uncovered and retrieved items from the six dwellings and ceremonial ruins from 1969 – 1972.
