Overview
More
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.

Great museum. Well set up and interesting. Locals get discounted entry. I’ve taken my family here several times. Always enjoyable.

This museum is not very big, but it has lots of fascinating information in it! It also has a short video to watch.

No smiles from the girl taking our order, the food was not served hot enough and was just average. The coffee was great!
