The Longmire Museum is very, very basic and has only a small offering of literature and gifts from its conservancy. There are a few displays with titles and descriptions, but you will probably get through it all in5 to 10 minutes. I got the feeling...More

You can expect your average selection of items from the history of the Park here. It's not as large as the Jackson Visitor center up at Paradise, but it does offer some nice dioramas of animals you are (unlikely) to see in the park. There's...More

This is a very small museum, but worth a stop if you have the time! There was also a ranger at the register that was able to answer my questions about a couple hikes, which was helpful!

As others have stated this is a small and somewhat interesting museum. However it seems that it has been unchanged for 25 years. Time for an update.

This is a cute little museum with mostly to do about animals and early summits of Mt. Rainier. It was worth the 15 minutes it took us to go through it. Plus it has a NPS passport stamp inside that is different from the one...More
