A decent enough museum with some interesting history, the Powell museum makes for a nice stop as you pass through Green River.

This small museum is worth a stop. It covers a range of river history including the exploration of the region and the efforts to navigate by boat. The entrance fee is $6 and gives access to exhibits, a 20 minute movie that gives a good overview of Powell’s first trip, and an art exhibit. Free panels outside review the history of the town of Green River as well.
