My friend and I were traveling from California to Indiana, stopping at as many national parks as possible along the way. We happened by the Museum of the Mountain West while driving through and were absolutely blown away by the collection Mr.Fike has acquired over the years. It felt as though we stepped back in time. Every piece in the museum has a story. Mr.Fike and his staff are extremely friendly and proud of the things they have on display. Thank you for preserving this history and for sharing it with the world. This is a must do if you’re in the area. We were there for almost three hours and could have easily stayed for many more, so much to see. Thank you Mr.Fike and your amazing staff and volunteers for an amazing experience!

Our season runs concurrently with the school year.

The level of talent in this community theater will amaze you. There isn't a bad seat in the house, with the seating arranged stadium-style in a near semi-circle around the open stage, which sits below the audience (or at the same level as the first & lowest row of seats). Musicals tend to sell out quickly, but more dramatic plays generally offer available tickets right up to the day of a performance. If you're looking for a wonderful way to spend an evening (or an afternoon if you prefer a matinee), Magic Circle Players are sure to entertain.

This was a great and well informed museum. My son and I really enjoyed watching the film on the Utes and exploring the Tipis outside. They also have these amazing FREE summer hands on activity kits for the kids to do. We loved them so much that we bought several of them along with the free one of the week. Very informative and beautiful artifacts on display. The staff was super sweet and the little gift shop was great too.
