Fodor's Expert Review Museum of the Mountain Man

Pinedale Museum/Gallery

Fur trappers were the first non-Native Americans to live in these parts year-round, arriving in the early 19th century when the area was the center of the Rocky Mountain fur trade. The museum celebrates that trapper history, with guns, traps, clothing, and beaver pelts from that time period. In the early summer the museum features living-history demonstrations, children's events, and lectures. In July it hosts reenactment of the Green River Rendezvous, when mountain men, Native Americans, and others got together to barter and socialize.
