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

This little historical building has a small interesting museum. There is an tree ring right outside that gives a good idea of the age of these tall trees. Next to it is an old cool gas station.

Great little log cabin housing a small exhibit of information about the history and wildlife in the area. There are great walks, an ancient tree stump and bathrooms. There also a restaurant but I didn’t visit that.

Small museum with some nice artifacts. Sets the stage for the park. Rangers are there to answer questions. You also have the lodge there if you need to eat. Across the street is a trail head for Wonderland

Nice little museum. Classic log cabin, which is exactly what I would expect in a national park. Displays were basic info on volcanos and wildlife in the area.

C. Frank Brockman, my forest recreation and wildlife professor at the University of Washington, both designed and saved this museum from being destroyed by an unfriendly bureaucracy.

The Museum is very small with not a lot to see. Next door you can go to the little gift shop for a few snacks or gifts. There is a small little trail head just across the street that will take you on an interpretative...More
