Edge of the Cedars State Park Museum in Blanding is an archaeological site, repository and museum located on the site of a prehistoric agriculture village. Occupied between 700 A.D. and 1200 A.D., the area has been home to various ancient cultures, including Ancestral Puebloans/Anasazi, Navajo, and Utes. The Edge of the Cedars museum houses the largest collection of Ancestral Puebloan pottery and relics in southeastern Utah, including an excavated and restored kiva. The ancient ceremonial room, which can be entered and explored, provides an excellent perspective of Anasazi architecture and lifestyle. The museum offers guided tours of the restored dwellings, archaeological exhibits, two exhibit halls, an auditorium, a gift shop, and an interpretive nature trail.

Emphasis is placed on ancestral Puebloan life in this southeastern Utah archaeological repository, park, and museum. Listed on both the National and State Registers of Historic Places. Indoor displays include Puebloan pottery, basketry, tools, and jewelry. Outside, petroglyph figures are prominent in the garden.

The ruin of a village occupied from AD 750 - AD 1220 is open to visitors. Of particular note are the Horse Rock Ruin basketry collection, a Macaw feather sash, and a loom dating from the middle of the first millennium; all of which were discovered in San Juan County.
