Attraction details
Owner description: 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 decided to stop at this little town on our way up to Jackson Hole and glad we did. This museum was like no other, especially loved the John Wayne display. Definitely worth the stop.

Small but very nice museum with a little bit of history and something for everyone. The building was built specifically for this museum and it boasts two housing reconstructions inside, a huge teepee and a twig house. Lots of great displays showcasing various aspects of western life modern and ancient. Good for the whole family.

This museum was great! Even though it is located in a very small town, it has almost anything you would want to see or know about mountain men of the old west. The exhibits are well displayed and the information on each item is very thorough. It is well worth the atop.

It's always fun to see the history of our American West. This is one of the best museums I've seen. Full size replica of a tepee, massive firearms collections, historical weapons, all the fun. Besides that you're just minutes away from the beauty of Wind River Mountains.

$5 per adult. Nicely put together. Well maintained.

A few interesting "attractions" but overall, fairly typical of most museums.

A nice place to spend a rainy afternoon. However, if you can find something to do outside, I'd pick the outdoors in Pinedale.
