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

How can a museum be closed for training.? You have all winter for training. They sent you to the wilderness center for info. 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...

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. A small gift shop manned by a park ranger, who was admittedly quite knowledgeable. Worth the 10 or 15... More
