The Pinedale region was at the heart of the Rocky Mountain Fur Trade, which supplied precious beaver pelts to the fashion industries of Europe and the eastern United States. Mountain men like Jim Bridger, Kit Carson, Thomas Fitzpatrick and William Sublette carved their legends here, and opened the way for the pioneers of the Oregon Trail. The Museum of the Mountain Man shares a comprehensive collection of Rocky Mountain fur trade journals, relics such as Jim Bridger’s Rifle and the finest Native American sheephorn bow still in existence. Opened May through October and winter season by appointment.

This museum is very nice especially considering it is in a small town. Very good exhibits that they rotate occasionally. Nice building with lots of parking. Best time to visit is during the yearly rendezvous when they have exhibits outside and presentations about the fur...More

Interesting mountain man stuff, not the most engaging museum I've seen but not bad. $10 per person seemed a little high for the experience.
