Lots of great information on how to see the park. The park rangers who staff the visitor center are very knowledgeable about the park and various activities. We attended two evening talks and learned so much about the park.

This newer, modern building was built with a wall of windows focused on Old Faithful Geyser steaming and going off. Very good view.

There are explanations as to how everything was formed, how everything works, the history of the formations, etc. There is a section for children that offers easy to understand explanations. Worth a top to... More

The Education center was a great place to visit. It also got us out of the rain for a while. The rain came and went for an entire day.

This center has a great exhibit showing the Yellowstone Hotspot and teaching about geysers, mud pots, fumerols, hot springs and more. Worthy of an hour to spend while waiting for Old Faithful to erupt again. The rangers are very knowledgeable and offer several hikes and talks throughout the day about the geology and geologic features in the park.

The exhibits in here were very informative and easy for all ages to enjoy. The children's area has a geyser model that truly helps you understand how a geyser works. The model is great for children AND adults to enjoy.

We stopped in here and took the Ranger led Stroll around Old Faithful and it was absolutely worth the 45 min. The Ranger who led it was incredibly nice and gave us soooo much information. She was great about answering any questions and we learned a ton about geysers and hot springs. They also have a session for kids that... More

Moved my son up to Jackson, WY and figured since I have never been to this part of the country, this is the perfect time to see this historical icon. It was certainly worth the drive. Partly because the drive to get there is so breath taking. The other reason, is because this is a really cool thing to see... More

Of course you have to see Old Faithful when you're in Yellowstone, but it was a bit of a mess. The parking lot was so crowded we felt like we were at a pro football game. What seemed like a zillion people all crowded around the geyser to watch it blow. It was just odd after being in such peaceful... More
