Mount Rainier National Park Sights

Jackson Memorial Visitor Center

Updated 10/21/2013

Fodor's Review

High on the mountain's southern flank, this center houses exhibits on geology, mountaineering, glaciology, and alpine ecology. Multimedia programs are staged in the theater; there's also a snack bar and gift shop. This is the park's most popular visitor destination, and it can be quite crowded in summer.
