We love to learn history about places wherever we go, it is always good to know what or how this place become the way it is (sometime it could be sad because things have changed a lot). Museum is a must-stop place for a trip, make sure you stop here as well !

Since we were staying at the National Park Inn, we had to go check out the museum. It is a very cute little place.

After you enter the park, take some time to visit this small museum on the Paradise Road East. There are exhibits that explain the history, geography, geology and flora and fauna. I enjoyed looking at the birds and animals that had been preserved. A small gift shop is also inside. Also, clean restrooms are available there before you begin your... More

Log structures and lots of history for viewing and absorbing. Great views from amongst the forest to look at Mount Rainier as well.

We spent 15 minutes because of schedule but if you want the history of this beautiful park displayed in original cases, etc, then this is a must stop. Great that documents were kept! Interesting headquarters building nearby.

The exhibits need some work but you will learn things about the flora and fauna. If they got a handy volunteer in to fix the light board that would be great.

What a classic charming piece of history. Stop and check out the little museum and visitors center. Head to the gas station display - no gas just a glimpse of history. The little general store is adorable and the staff helpful and pleasant. There is a little loop trail across the road from the Inn that is an easy walk,... More

This free museum is worth the stop on the way through Mt. Rainier National Park. Parking can sometimes be a hassle, but worth the wait -- also check out the wooden bridge to the Community Building also in Longmire.

Not a very large museum but you can see some pictures of the area and a short history. There is a cut out of Douglas Fir at the entrance where date plaques were attached showing different events such as other eruptions, etc., in the area dating back to 1293
