Yavapai Geology Museum
To learn about Grand Canyon rocks, visit the museum at Yavapai Observation Station. The interactive exhibits chronicle the geological history and composition of the Canyon as well as providing a spectacular view. Admission is Free!
Exhibits are devoted to geology, with the main exhibit out beyond the windows, in the panoramic view of the Canyon. A series of back lit panels use a combination of text, floor-to-ceiling visuals, and interactive lessons to explain the geologic forces that shaped the Canyon, and the human history that shaped what we know about it.
