Looking to inject a little Eastern Sierra or Mammoth history into your adventure? Make the Hayden Cabin your first stop. Located adjacent to the famous Mammoth Creek and offering sweeping valley and mountain views, the Hayden Cabin is a picturesque spot for every adventure -- from a grand event like a wedding to a quiet family picnic.
The Hayden Cabin was originally constructed in the 1920’s by Emmett Hayden, a famous map maker of the Eastern Sierra and offers both outdoor and indoor entertainment for just about any group.
If you find yourself with an afternoon to spare, pack a picnic -- or grab takeout from one of Mammoth's amazing restaurants. Spread a blanket on the lawn and let the kids get their wiggles out exploring the meadow. Take a walk along the meandering waters of Mammoth Creek and kick back surrounded by breathtaking 360 degree views.
Then pop into the museum where a talented crew of docents will share the story of Hayden Cabin and the history of Mammoth Lakes through artifacts, photographs, displays, storytelling.
Enjoy the gallery, which features both local and touring art shows.
If you want to make the Museum part of your planned activities, check their calendar for these events:
