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.

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!

Museum of the Mountain Man is a very respectable effort to give you a glimpse into the life of the 'Mountain Man.' My wife and I enjoyed if very much and appreciated the museum's effort to house such a collection of artifacts from that time...More

A wonderful, artifact illustrated history of the Mountain Men that we have heard so much about. This area was prime Mountain Man country about 175 years ago and this museum answers a lot of questions about this colorful character. The answers aren't always what you...More

The museum is surprisingly well done for being in such a small town. Like the Three Trails Museum in Casper, but on a smaller scale. The exhibits are very nice and informative. The staff was also very friendly.

Excellent place to view both flintlock & percussion firearms. History materials & book abound. There's an excellent DVD on continual loop - be sure to watch that for a good backgrounder.

Visited here with our 13 year old sons. We all loved it and learned lots about the mountain men and the pioneers/explorers. Thank you
