Thing to Do

Learn about Giant Sequoias

Giant Forest Museum

Open year round, Giant Forest Museum is a great place to start the day. It’s the first building and parking lot you see if you drive into the Giant Forest from the south. Discover the Sentinel Tree as you walk to the museum. Spend some time inside and discover what makes this an ideal place for sequoias to grow. Learn about the important role of fire in sequoia tree development. Check out a variety of hands-on exhibits, park films, and ranger programs. This is a great place to ask a ranger about trails, viewpoints, and the must-see spots in the Giant Forest.
