If you wish to lean about Longmire and the towns history as a resort, the small museum and the old gas station here will entertain and inform. Both are filled with old photographs stories and maps. There is a section on the natural habitat, the type of game found here and a complete history of how and why Longmire ,... More

This is okay. Given the amount of history in this park, it should be much much better. It was must more of a history lesson walking the trial across the street.

The history of the museum itself was pretty fascinating, but the content inside was fairly standard. Lots of stuffed native animals that have been there for decades, information on the first climbers of the mountain and the history of the park.

The museum had some interesting information on Mt. Rainier, the wildlife, and flora and fona. The folks who work there were very helpful, especially the Ranger Erin. She made our trip so much better!

Some nice stuffed animals, and interesting info about the immediate area's history. Make sure you check out the old gas station just around the corner.
