Museums & Galleries
Cedar City has a rich culture filled with fine arts and bygone days. A few examples not to miss include the Southern Utah Museum of Art (SUMA) a state of the art fine arts museum in the heart of Cedar City and the Frontier Homestead State Park Museum, a Heritage State Park featuring preserved artifacts, images & stories of our past.
Throughout Cedar City’s Historic Downtown there are museum-quality bronze statues commemorating the lives of four prominent citizens of Cedar City and their contribution to the region and to the world.
