Found this visitor center by accident. Very friendly and helpful staff people. Clean as a pin rest rooms and a great gift shop. It was here we learned (from another tourist) of the nice restaurant named, "Dornan's" that is located a short distance from the visitor center. We are going to stop here again next time. Seems the float trips... More

In the past year my wife and I have visited Glacier, Yosemite, Sequoia & Kings Canyon, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, and Death Valley and without a doubt this is the most stunning visitor center we have been to. Great mixed media exhibits, a fantastic view of the Tetons, large gift shop, and a spacious and architecturally beautiful building. Truly a great... More

Brand new visitor center - beautiful architecture that takes full advantage of the views and its vantage point. Knowledgeable rangers to help with maps, guides, etc. Nice gift store for souvenirs. Movie is a must see.

If, as a ranger at Montana's Little Big Horn National Historic Site told us, the National Park Service is running on fumes then the Craig Thomas Visitor Center at the Moose Entry to Grand Teton National Park has a full tank of high test fuel! This stunning for architecture, view siting, displays and orientation film may be the most impressive... More

Nicely done museum named after our senior senator that passed away a couple of years ago. It just isn't that exciting to me.

Honestly, we stopped here to use the bathroom while in the Tetons. This visitor center, though, is magnificent! There are tons of exhibits and learning opportunities, maps, information, rangers and a beautiful gift shop with tons of books, clothes, toys, etc. There is a topographical map of the Tetons/Yellowstone, antlers from different animals, rock climbing equipment to look at/play with,...

We went to this visitor center several times. Very nice and clean and informational. We actually met our Float guide in the parking lot to take our float trip on the Snake River.

It wasn't on our initial plans but when questionable weather prevented a planned hike, the boys got to view the exhibits. And we got a tip on a moose by the bridge and got some excellent pictures of him.

We visited a number of Centers, and this is the best. Outside, is a huge, life-sized bronze Moose. Inside is full of well illustrated exhibits. There were hands-on exhibits of animal paw and hoof prints, accompanied by fur to touch. In addition to the informative exhibits, the building itself is very attractive. It is light and airy, with big windows... More
