“A good museum in which you can learn much about the park”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

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.

“Small informative museum”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

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 hike.

“good side trip”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

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.

“Nice little museum”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

This is a nice little museum with some interesting information about the parks history. If you are passing then this is definitely worth a stop. Outside there are some pretty old gas pumps and an old Red Bus that a worth checking out also.
