We've taken our children here twice, and they really like this museum and the Junior Ranger program here. Just outside the large picture windows is an outdoor patio that has a very unique interactive display illustrating the various peaks at which you are looking. You'll need to study the ground to see it, ironically. :) Accessibility: Yes, the museum is... More

This is a beautiful visitor's center, with lots of exhibits and helpful rangers. My daughter loved the pelts of different animals that you could feel and the statues of those animals. There is a giant picture window that frames the mountains beautifully. The bathrooms were very clean and there was a nice gift shop. Because we were pressed for time,... More

I have visited many of our Nation's National Parks. To this day Grand Teton is my number one must see place to experience. The Craig Thomas Discovery Center is the proverbial icing on the cake to understanding the Grand Teton's rich history, and future. I was especially enamored with the visual displays, both static, and dynamic. The bronze works are... More

We stopped at this center as we left the 42 mile Loop. The center is well done with interesting displays and insightful history of the area. There are many interactive displays which will also invite children to learn and explore. Take the extra time to watch the informational video presentation, too.

The Craig Thomas Discovery & Visitor Center is at the southern entrance to Grand Teton National Park, just west of the main highway from Jackson. The attractive, new building has a large relief map of the park, exhibits about various aspects of the park, and a nice theater where a 24-minute movie orients visitors to the park. Friendly park rangers... More

This is a great place to ask questions, watch movies about Grand Teton National Park, pick up the very informative park newspaper, visit the gift and book shop, get a weather forecast, learn from the exhibits, join in on a ranger talk, and use the free wi-fi. The design, materials, and siting of the beautiful building, which opened in 2007,... More

this was my favorite, great exhibits and helpful information. All the visitor centers were great. This 1 is right before you enter the park from Jackson Hole. There is also a nice 1 in Jackson Hole that has information on the Tetons and Yellowstone.

Not only are the Grand Tetons breath-takingly beautiful but the visitor center was one of the best we'd been at. So educational and the people were so informative and patient in answering questions. Well done! Congrats to our government for doing something right!
