Great place - I always like seeing the older, original, National Park museums/ranger stations/visitor centers. Just wish that more of them could be preserved. There should be a place for the old and the new. For example, the Paradise visitor center is new, massive and state of the art.... But the Longmire Museum is wonderful too and I hope that... More

Average historical museum for a NP. No more than an hour at most. Worth a visit to pick up some park history.

Longmire is a "don't miss" when visiting the park. It includes an old inn, rest rooms and the Longmire Museum, which is filled with old items and information about the Park.

This is a small museum, but has a very helpful female ranger there who gives those who are interested good information. The restrooms are next door to museum. It has a small gift shop, but the prices are fair, some items were cheaper here than at the larger Paradise Gift Shop.

We walked 1.5miles from Cougar Rock camping to Longmeyer with two eight year old girls. They did OK. We learned much to our disappointment there are no hot springs there to speak of. There is a neat suspension bridge, museum, inn, old time gas station, and gift shop/limited grocery. It is a historic site as the architecture is the model... More

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

The preson was nice but I wanted more info about James Longmire, the discovery of the mineral springs and the fact that the "HORSE" found the springs as it roamed the meadow. it appears people are digging...
