What a great place to see the history of Pinedale! It has wonderful displays and still life reenactments of some historical Mountain Man stories. Loved the Mountain Man fighting the Grizzly still life (real life event that was also portrayed in the Revenant).

This museum only takes an hour to see, and it is a good retelling of the history of beaver fur trapping here in the 1800s. Well worth the visit.

This gives a great over view of the mountain men era. They make things I've heard about all my life come to life.

Mountain Man Museum is extremely well done, informative and possesses personal effects of Jim Bridger. Explains the life of the Mountain Man between 1822-1840s in well depicted dioramas, art, and exhibits descriptions. There is also a small but well done gift shop.

This museum does a stellar job sharing Mountain Man history. It's easy to navigate, interesting, and the bookstore and gift shop are worth a stop.
