A short visit to this museum provides historical perspective to initiative and labor to open the Mt. Rainier area for tourism.
Learn about activities, gains and losses.
Expect to spend no more then 30 minutes.

Small in size, large in quality, this museum has a range of displays, lots of useful information together with helpful Rangers explanations. Worth a stop and visit if you are passing.

For the size, the park service packed this museum with good information about Mount Rainier and the surrounding area. There were some dated displays with pictures from the 50's but the diaramas were well laid out with examples of the local fauna and flora. There was a very good display of how the mountain worked and the Ranger was helpful with explaining about the geology. Though small it is well worth the stop to see. You can also get your Passport stamp.

Really calling this a museum is overstating the contents. There is a very small display area, but this is really the place to catch a ranger and ask any questions you have about the Longmire area or Rainier in general. So stop if you have questions and take advantage of the exhibits, but if you are tight on time this one can be eliminated. Definitely, because of the size, not good for a large group and strollers would compromise the viewing of other visitors - while not being of interest to children.

We visited this museum along with the village area & Trail of the Shadows. The museum is pretty small but has some taxidermy animals from the park. It also has a little of the history of the park. The park ranger is here too.

There is a slice of a tree trunk on display outside that started growing about 1253 and cut in the 1960's. There is also a antique looking gas station on display.

We also stepped in the hotel to see the history of it. The porch looks like a fun place to hang out.

The park ranger at the museum encouraged me to work on my junior ranger and citizen ranger patch, which I got the next day. It was fun.

Small with many stuffed animals. If this is what you want in a museum this is maybe worth a few minutes of your time in the park. Otherwise skip it.

This is a very small museum but it contains a lot of information about the area and how it was developed starting with the Longmire family. This is worth a visit if you stop in Longmire.

The Longmire Museum is very, very basic and has only a small offering of literature and gifts from its conservancy. There are a few displays with titles and descriptions, but you will probably get through it all in5 to 10 minutes. I got the feeling the museum was there more for the ranger presence to answer questions from visitors.

You can expect your average selection of items from the history of the Park here. It's not as large as the Jackson Visitor center up at Paradise, but it does offer some nice dioramas of animals you are (unlikely) to see in the park.

There's a Ranger stationed here who can offer you as much information as you need. Be sure to collect the NPS Passport stamp also.

It’s fine for a quick “stop and look around”but don’t expect to spend much time as there really is let any thing to see or do.

The rangers were friendly and more than willing to answer any questions but then again we were pressed to come up with a question.

The antique gas station was interesting and a look into the past
