We enjoyed our visit here in August 2016. The film was very good. The facility was run by friendly, informed, hospitable people. The exhibits were very good. The restrooms were clean and handy. Certainly worth a stop-by.

Activities for the kids and costumes to borrow for family photos. A general store that serves soft ice cream! Air conditioned buildings dot...More

Bluff was settled by Mormon Pioneers who wanted to establish a mission in the area. There was a "mission call" for the pioneers to settle the four corners area. Sounded like it wasn't all "volunteer", if you get my drift. The pioneers took the Hole...More
