This was very interesting, and gives a good insight to how the park was founded and developed. Some good volcanic information.

I had to go in there in March to sign in to let them know I was hiking up to Muir for an overnighter. Would I tell anyone to stop in and take time away from just getting up to Paradise? Do you want to worry about re passing all the morons who you had to pass just to get... More

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.

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

My wife and I were in Seattle for business and only had one free day to take in the sites. We are so glad we decided to make the trip to Rainier National Park. We wish we would have had more time to spend in the area. The Longmire Museum and area was one of our stops in the park.... More

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.
