When Joseph Walker passed through in 1833, there were none, but today, thousands of maps portray the landscape of Yosemite National Park. From a state land grant created during the Civil War, to computer mapping and modern resource management, these maps also tell the story of the protection of Yosemite.

Yosemite Museum

When it opened to the public on May 29, 1926, the Yosemite Museum became the first museum building in the national park system, and its educational objectives served as a model for parks nationwide. It still functions much as it was originally intended, and currently exhibits items which mainly reflect the Native occupation of Yosemite Valley and its surroundings. When in the park, you can visit with one of three cultural demonstrators who primarily staff the Museum.
