About the Powell Museum
Our mission is to collect, preserve, and interpret the history of John Wesley Powell, the City of Page, and the Colorado Plateau.
The Powell Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization started in 1969 by a group of local volunteers to commemorate the life and accomplishments of Major John Wesley Powell. The building we now occupy was originally built by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation as a concrete testing lab for the construction of Glen Canyon Dam. Today, it houses interpretive exhibits, historic collections and archives, a visitor information center, and a shop with books, maps, local art, and items relating to the Colorado Plateau.
