The center is the place to get an overview of Grand Teton Park. The desk staff are always helpful. There is an excellent relief map to get you oriented. While there are many places to drive to in the park, Grand Teton is best seen from the numerous hiking trails. For those having difficulty with the elevation, the trail from... More

There is an impressive auditorium which opens up to a view of the tetons after the presentation. Lots of things to see here. You can touch the fur of many different animals. This is one of the newer centers with modern facilities.

Wow, it is the best visitor center I have visited. When I did the research online, I knew it was to be visited. My friends were initially reluctant to visit but when they saw it, they said it is worth every minute we spent there. Very detailed informaiton about the history and geology of the area, together with a great... More

First, the large window view of the Tetons is awesome! And each topic in discovery center done well, i.e. climbing techniques fascinating; geology of park very well presented, i.e., tectonics and hotspot; and excellent book store. Give yourself 1-2 hours (we didn't get a chance to see the movie presentation). Also, there are picnic tables around the parking lot --... More

Fantastic displays with Park Ranger discussions of what to see and expect in the park. Short movie gives you a nice overview. Should not be missed

The information displays are engaging and one learns a sweeping overview of the geological forces that created the Grand Tetons and a brief bit of history of the tough people who settled nearby and made sure they became a National Park. The rangers are very helpful and will direct you to places and activities that match your interests and available... More
