Glacier Point Trailside Museum
AKA Glacier Point Lookout
Glacier Point Road

The Glacier Point Trailside Museum was one of the first projects in Yosemite National Park by Herbert Maier in what would become the National Park Service Rustic style.

Located at Glacier Point, it was funded by Laura Spelman Rockefeller's estate as a project for the Yosemite Museum. It was the first "trailside museum" in the National Park system, and was a prototype for enhanced visitor interpretation services in the parks.
