More of an educational museum for the children but as adults we can all learn something. Very nice building. Great exhibits. The rangers are so knowledgeable and so friendly. Go in. Browse around and learn something.

This lodge has a good exhibit of local animals and geology along with artwork and a great view of the meadow and mountains. My boy did his packet and got his first Jr Ranger badge! A nice quiet spot in the afternoon.

Great hands-on displays for all ages. Ask about the history of the building & appreciate the architecture of this log home converted into a visitor center!

Good displays about the area, and examples of resident artists' work. Excellent kid-centered activities (junior ranger & nature walks). A limited array of items to purchase.
