The Anasazi State Park Museum offers another opportunity to get up close and personal with Utah’s natural and human history.
Anasazi Indian State Park

Anasazi State Park - Ruins

A museum houses most of the artifacts that have been found in this former Anasazi Indian village, which was occupied between 1050 and 1200 A.D. and is believed to be the largest Anasazi community west of the Colorado River. The Anasazi State Park Museum also features some artifacts of the Freemont People, another ancient culture that lived nearby. The site behind the museum is mostly unexcavated and shielded from the southern Utah sun and snow by a protective roof. An Anasazi home has been reconstructed for display. Anasazi State Park Museum is situated in the six-acre park, at an elevation of 6,700 feet. The park is located along Scenic Byway 12 in Boulder, and is open year-round.
