The Pinedale region was at the heart of the Rocky Mountain Fur Trade, which supplied precious beaver pelts to the fashion industries of Europe and the eastern United States. Mountain men like Jim Bridger, Kit Carson, Thomas Fitzpatrick and William Sublette carved their legends here, and opened the way for the pioneers of the Oregon Trail. The Museum of the Mountain Man shares a comprehensive collection of Rocky Mountain fur trade journals, relics such as Jim Bridger’s Rifle and the finest Native American sheephorn bow still in existence. Opened May through October and winter season by appointment.

We had an hour or so to look through the museum, it covers history and people (Hugh Glass, from whom the Revenant was adapted) of Sublette County. There are lots of guns and furs that would have been traded between the natives and the mountain...More

Not a huge place. Saw the sign charging 10 dollars. I think that's a bit steep. Left without going in.

This was a very modern, interesting and well-maintained museum. It seems the fur trapper experience in various parts of the country was pretty similar but interesting to learn how the mountain terrain impacted and how the rendezvous tradition started and continues. Do check out the...More

We've been coming to this outstanding display of mountain man and related history for years! Their building now is a grand improvement over their original one. Go back if you have not toured the relatively newer facility. It is extremely well run by some of...More

Small, but nice museum. I think it'd be great for really young children or older kids with more interest in the subject area, but for my 12 year old, it wasn't very exciting. They did have a nice kids' area downstairs.

Outstanding organization and displays of the history of the mountain man, the trade, & the region. A lot of reading material available for purchase and some top quality displays outdoors.

This museum provides a glimpse into the history of this area and is filled with information and artifacts such as a replica of a boat/canoe made out of buffalo and deer skin. An hour flew by as we explored this small museum.
