The exhibits display the rich human history of Zion National Park. Showcasing American Indian culture, historic pioneer settlement, and Zion's growth as a national park, the Human History Museum also illustrates the effects of water in Zion. Both creator and destroyer, water is why people have traveled through and settled in Zion. Water creates the scenery and sanctuary that makes Zion famous.
The dominant feature of the exhibit is the Water Fountain, the symbolic link to the other topics within the exhibit: Sanctuary, Animal, Geology, and Future.
Zion is an ancient Hebrew word meaning a place of refuge or sanctuary. Protected within the park's 229 square miles is a dramatic landscape of sculptured canyons and soaring cliffs. This unique geography and the variety of life zones within the park make Zion significant as a place of unusual plant and animal diversity.
