Rainbow Point was developed by the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) in 1939, and it has three different components. First is the overlook area. This has been refurbished in recent years, but the original stone and metal railings can be seen outside of the newer stone and log rails.
Second is the “museum” at Rainbow Point. The museum is not a building but an open structure with display cases featuring natural habitat, geology, etc. The structure is relatively large (20 x 10 feet). This is the most noted CCC project in Bryce Canyon National Park
Third is the Bristlecone Trail at Rainbow Point. This is a short, 1 mile trail out to a grove of Bristlecone Pines and spectacular views.
