  • If you are in the area worth a visit even. Very impressive with lots of information about the life of the Trapper.

  • The Museum shows the time and the life of the "mountain man", the Beaver Hunter, with many excellent exhibits and a lot of very interesting information. The Museum shows both the perspective of the white settlers, as also of the native tribes. Has been fun and I've learned something. Real good.

  • We were in awe, such a great Museum. We are history buffs and have visited a lot of Museum's in the past but this one is extra special. If you're in the area it's a must see  more »

  • Mostly kid friendly. Lots of artifacts and exhibits to view. Almost overwhelming amount of information. Easy to spend about 3-4 hours here. Enjoyed the exhibit about Hugh Glass. The producers of the Reverent used experts from the museum when they filmed their movie. A must see when in town!
  • We enjoyed wandering through this museum on our visit. We learned so much about the mountain man's way of life, the Attack of Hugh Glass and the surrounding area. I would recommend stopping if you have a couple hours to wander.
  • _Exceptionally_ well done for a special-topic museum, laid out in a quasi-chronological narrative. Those who aren't experts in the Fur Trade Era really should watch the ~20-minute video before engaging the collection. That will help a visitor to appreciate the quality of the collections and the attention to detail in the exhibits. (One quibble: The Admissions desk will suggest watching the video orientation first. It is sufficiently well done that it is worth watching as designed, from beginning to end. But at least as of my most recent visit in Aug 2017 there was no way to know when the video was beginning, other than asking at the Admissions desk. Video could be digitized and played from a computer starting at 00, 20 and 40 minutes after the hour.)
  • Super unique it's fun and interesting. They give children scavenger hunt maps so they don't get to bored. It's cool especially if you're from the Rockies. I would recommend, pindale is quite small so this is something interesting to do.
  • We really enjoyed the exhibits and artifacts displayed . Educational and enteraining
