“Great stop at the top of the hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2015

Park your car, get out and stretch your legs before you go on. All the info in the world, friendly Rangers too. Nice gifts if that's what you're into.

“Lots of good info”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2015

Helpful, knowledgeable rangers, good displays. We liked the display of the relative heights of the great trees and other things we think of as tall. And 91,000 sequoia seeds=1 lb.

“disapointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2015

I guess I was expecting more from this museum. Spent about 20 minutes here but probably would not stop on a return visit. Restroom extremely crowded too.

“Very Informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2015

We learned a lot about the giant sequoias and the forest they make up in the museum. The Sentinel tree stands out front, towering over the building. There are some interesting facts along the sidewalk, and a measuring gauge that helps a person put the height into perspective. Worth the visit.

“Everyone should go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2014

This museum is dedicated to the forest, and everyone should stop. It is amazing that the size of the seed that this giant tree grows from is about the size of a sunflower seed! They have other pinecone seeds, and this is probably the smallest of them all and produces the largest tree!
