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.

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

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.

I recommend visiting this museum for the educational experience it provides. It does have an old-time, dusty-stuff-in-glass-cases feel about it and might benefit from some modernizing, but my wife and I enjoyed our visit and would stop by again upon a return to the park.

This is a very small museum and can get crowded, but it's definitely worth a stop. You can learn about the first people to the park and the history of the park. It has nice displays of the wildlife in the park too. The man at the desk was very nice and will help you with directions or choosing a... More

Learned about the original settlers / businesses for Mount Rainier. It was interesting that these pioneers lured people from Seattle for mineral springs and campfire food.
