surely worth the stop

The museum is smaller, but there is plenty of information about the park. The Longmire lodge is close so you can park there and walk to the museum.

My kids (boys ages 10 and 12) loved this museum. The small size and range of wildlife in the museum was the perfect break from a day of hiking. It is free to enter and the kids also enjoyed looking at the old fuel station nearby.

Not the most exciting museum. I would not go out of my way to go to this museum. We only went because it was near the lodging we were staying at in the park.

Worth a short visit. If you're driving by, stop in. It'll only take you about 15 minutes but there was some interesting reading. Plus the Mount Rainier Bus that's across the way is worth the stop alone.

We missed the museum on our first day in the park and made a special trip there on the second day. We were shocked to see how small it was. It definitely had some interesting info and displays, but I would not make a special trip to see it. If you are in the area it is definitely worth stopping... More

This place preserves the day spa facilities the Longmires ran before Mt. Rainier was a National park. The Inn and restaurant is still in use. Most are original buildings and it has a trail across from the Inn that traces the history of the facility.

Quick stop - smallish but packed with information. More helpful here. I love how this area is nestled and quaint. I should have stayed here instead of at Paradise Inn. This location also has the National Park Inn.

Interesting to learn about the Longmire family, who started a hot springs resort here before the park. Also can take a 20 minute look walk to see the old cabin where some of the visitors stayed many years ago. Museum has some history and next to it is an old gas station.

the 1920s cabins and the original gas station with its vintage pumps are now home to the little Longmire museum. exhibits cover the native Americans who lived here, wildlife and geology. All in all, worth a 10 minute stop on your way into or out of the park.

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
