This is a great place to stop on your way in or out of the park. There is information on animals, Native Americans and the pioneers. There are hides of different animals in the park that you can feel, as well as large models of animals you can take pictures with inside and outside of the center. There is also... More

The Grand Tetons were open only for non-motorized traffic and the South entrance to Yellowstone was closed in late April. So, drove through farmlands of Idaho and the Teton Scenic Byway to reach this visitor center. The exhibits are well presented. The structure is futuristic in appearance and makes up for the roads being closed and ranks #1 in all... More

Our party stopped by this center before our appointment for the Snake River float trip. Definitely should have allotted more time to see all the very unique exhibits. Plan for more than an hour, particularly if you like to read all the descriptions and take time to view each exhibit. This is a wonderful way to learn about Wyoming history.

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.
