A hidden gem. Small facility but engaging, knowledgeable staff. It was my first time meeting an African American female ranger. I hope my girl scout daisy troop was inspired

Great free outing for kids. They have animals to view and pet and very friendly and helpful staff. The space can be rented for birthday parties, although it is, truth be told, a slightly dreary building. There's a nice huge playground outside as well. My favorite part is the courtyard with a pond with turtles and fish in it.

It's a cool place for the children to see animals. The only down side is there are not many animals. But the kids love it. The staff is pleasant.

Ascending to 14,410 feet above sea level, Mount Rainier stands as an icon in the Washington landscape. Subalpine wildflower meadows ring this icy volcano while ancient forest cloaks its lower slopes. Created March 2, 1899, Mount Rainier is America’s fifth oldest national park.
