Visit Mammoth Museum housed inside the historic Hayden Log Cabin.

The Hayden Cabin was originally constructed in the 1920’s by Emmett Hayden, a famous map maker of the Eastern Sierra. Here, you will experience historic Mammoth Lakes through artifacts, photographs, displays, storytelling, music events, programs, and lectures. You will also find a gallery that displays both local and touring shows.

The Museum is located in a park-like setting next to the meandering waters of Mammoth Creek. It is a perfect spot to enjoy a picnic and reflect on past times, when the pace of life was a little slower.

Save the date for our 4th of July celebration!
