Museum of the Mountain Man [WY]
The Museum of the Mountain Man presents the early 1800s history of the fur trade and of "mountain men." The museum is located near the historic hub of the Rocky Mountain rendezvous system. These rendezvous were commercial and social gatherings where fur traders could equip themselves and catch up on the latest news. Collection highlight include a circa 1876-style furnished tipi, Jim Bridger's rifle, a 17th- or 18th-century Shoshone bow, other Native American artifacts, and a mountain man camp diorama.
The museum offers exhibits. Tours and groups require reservations, and appointments are necessary for winter visits.
