Our group of 8 from Taiwan lingered at the excellent exhibits and enjoyed the gift shop. The kids (and parents) liked touching the furs and horns/antlers of many Tetons animals. There were exhibits about the life and geology and history. We also enjoyed the huge relief map of the Tetons.

The ranger desk is in the big atrium, making it more pleasant to stand in line. The exhibits are informative and kid friendly--at least they kept my... More

This is a pretty new visitor center. The architectural design is wonderful -- very tall picture windows giving you a great view of the Tetons, with large named lines in the floor pointing to and identifying the various peaks in the Teton range. The educational components of this visitor center are terrific -- well thought out, an appealing to all... More

This was a great place to get an overview of the park. The information and hiking desk people were extremely helpful, informative and friendly and helped us plan a 3 day hike for our next visit. There were a number of exhibits with Native American artifacts and even a few with animal pelts to touch. I never imagined that a... More

Learn about the area: peoples, wildlife, geology, etc. Buy a great guide and postcards. Chat with a ranger and get recommendations for your visit: what would be suitable for your group, what is going on (animals, flowers, etc) during your stay.
